Public Art Fund Talks: Fiona Banner at The New School
Through sculpture, drawing, film, performance, and installation, British artist Fiona Banner explores the visual limitations of language. Banner has presented many works in the public realm and has often found sculpture to be a useful tool in articulating her chosen subject matter. She is well known for her text-based “portraits” of films or objects that are represented in a variety of media, including text, sculpture, and the artist’s own film work. Most recently, Banner’s exploration of historic military aircraft was the subject of a site-specific public installation at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park. Through an overview of her practice, Banner’s talk will explore the relationships between her work, the public, history, myth, and the inherent connections that bind them.
