An introduction to Transitional Object (PsychoBarn), Cornelia Parker's 2018 installation in the courtyard of the Royal Academy of Arts, London, inspired by HItchcock's Psycho and Edward Hopper's paintings.

This meticulous and unsettling installation is half stage set, half sculpture. The work, which draws on archetypal images of American culture such as the red barn and the infamous Bates motel from Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho, is here seen against a backdrop of Burlington House's neoclassical buildings. Generously illustrated with supporting imagery and installation shots, this book comprises a conversation with the artist and a text on the work's installation in London.

Cornelia Parker was elected a Royal Academician in 2009. She has since had solo shows at the Whitworth Gallery, Manchester, and the Frith Street Gallery, London. She is well known for her installations, including Cold Dark Matter: An Exploded View (1991), a reconstruction of an exploded shed, which now forms part of Tate's collection.
