About this deal

She has explained, ‘I thought it would be interesting to strip off all the narrative and the mediation of the film image, and just look at the figure. For Banner, bells signify the simplest form of communication – an instrument that requires no music; a language without words, yet with multiple and conflicting meanings. Enjoy the hottest mature women who still love masturbating and showing off their hot bodies in these naughty scenes from OlderWomanFun. She has also said: ‘The performances expose these layers of voyeurism – my voyeurism looking at the model, and the audience’s voyeurism looking at me making the art, and looking at the model.

In response to requests from the Legal Deposit Office The Vanity Press produced a comprehensive bound catalogue of the ISBN artworks and the data information forms used to register them. The tapestry was a propaganda triumph, which influences the way history depicts the invasion to this day. Her fascination with the English language led her to re-examine how history has represented the Battle of Hastings, an event which had a profound impact on the development of modern English.Preserved by King Tom's lens, this print transports us back to a time when famous people like Fiona Richmond dared to challenge societal expectations with their unapologetic authenticity. Now as a very grounded, yet slightly implausible tower, the books have been transformed, through the simplest of means, from a library, list and collection into a piece of sculpture. Fiona Banner’s practice spans drawing, painting, sculpture, installation, performance and publishing.

Banner is fascinated with how within the life class there is often ‘a frisson of subdued sexuality – an excitement about how to formalise an act that would normally be very intimate and very erotic: looking for a long time, very intensely, at a naked person. These absurdist fantasies represent an endlessly deferred future and reveals a complex relationship with the contents of the annual compendium to which Jane later dedicated his life. Banner is best known for her ‘wordscapes’, highly subjective written accounts that often retell entire Hollywood feature films or sequences of events.Banner's current work encompasses sculpture, drawing and installation but text is still at the heart of her practice. But then the very way we look at all art, the way we treat artworks, the way we present them, is itself erotic. With both approaches Banner transcribes the object of her looking in a manner which in part resembles the processes that would be used for traditional figurative drawing, but with an end result in written rather than pictorial form.

The sculpture is cast from the rendered aluminium fuselage of a Tornado jet fighter – one of the most effective military aircraft of the past 30 years and aptly named after a destructive force of nature. First, I did some work with a striptease artist where I described her act verbally, then stripped the context back further so all I was left with was the nude. In the lower gallery are a series of books and prints selected from Banner’s own publishing imprint, The Vanity Press.

For the past few years Banner has been producing one-off publications as part of a series about the way ideas are represented and circulated. Since then, working with models and co-performers Marianne Hyatt, Ame Henderson and Samantha Morton, she has made a combination of works in the privacy of the studio and with observers.
