Cornelia Parker has always been attracted to the backs and undersides of things.


While the front presents a conscious and recognisable face to the world, the back is often disorganised, unconscious and ultimately perhaps more honest.

For Verso Cornelia Parker has photographed the backs of hand sewn button cards that are part of the Manchester Galleries’ collection. She has turned these small everyday cards over and has found abstract drawings in the haphazard cotton threads.
