This catalogue documents Cornelia Parker’s spectacular fireworks display A Meteorite lands in Birmingham’s Bullring on 26 March 2000, launched from the roof of Birmingham’s landmark Rotunda building.
The pyrotechnic mixture on this occasion contained a pulverized meteorite that had first fallen to earth in China during the 16th century. Its combustion recreated the final stage of a cosmic journey, a dazzling meteorite shower over Birmingham's Bullring Market.
This intervention by Parker represented a milestone in the history of Ikon, as it was the beginning of the gallery’s current and continuous programme of off-site projects.
The publication broadly includes seven double-page photographs of Parker’s fireworks display, 15 full-page photographic presentations of the artist’s work, an essay by Tate Modern Curator Jessica Morgan and a biography.
