Stanley Picker Lectures: Fiona Banner

Fiona Banner lives and works in London. She was shortlisted for the Turner Prize in 2002 and her installation Harrier and Jaguar.


Fiona Banner lives and works in London. She was shortlisted for the Turner Prize in 2002 and her installation Harrier and Jaguar, for which she placed two fighter planes in the neo-classical Duveen Galleries at Tate Britain, was in 2010.

The artist’s work 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 a complete cycle of intimacy, attraction and alienation.

Publishing, in the broadest sense, is at the heart of her practice. In 1997 she started working under the title of The Vanity Press. Under this imprint she has published books, objects, and performances.

Banner has exhibited widely in Europe and America. Her work is represented in many collections in the UK and abroad including the Museum of Modern Art, New York, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Arts Council of England, Tate Gallery, London and the Walker Art Gallery, Minneapolis.

Future projects include solo exhibitions at PEER, London (June 2014) and Yorkshire Sculpture Park, Wakefield, (July 2014).

The Stanley Picker Public Lectures are kindly supported by the Stanley Picker Trust.
