Harrier and Jaguar by Fionna Banner

i came across a recent commission of fionna banner by the tate britain. i must admit that i was unaware of her work before and feel like i’ve walked into a world i’ve been missing out on. her fascination with the emblem of the fighter plane gives us these elegant arrangements. she sees them as the ‘opposite of language’, used when communication fails …”harrier and jaguar remain ambiugous objects implying both captured beast and fallen trophy.” if you’re in london you can catch this exhibition until january 1011. i will definitely be exploring more of this delicately abrasive artists work. by kl
