Artist Profiles

Fiona Banner

Born 1966, Merseyside, England

Fiona Banner’s practice centres on the problems and possibilities of language, both written and metaphorical. From her ‘wordscapes’ to her use of found and transformed military aircraft, Banner juxtaposes the brutal and the sensual, performing an almost complete cycle of intimacy, attraction and alienation. In this exhibition the artist looks at how we mythologise history, and our willingness to be seduced by those myths.
