Some great shots of Fiona Banner‘s latest installation at Tate Britain. Fiona has suspended an enormous Sea Harrier nose-down from the ceiling just inches off the floor and polished an upside-down Sepecat Jaguar so visitors can see their reflection in it.
For Banner these objects represent the ‘opposite of language’, used when communication fails. In bringing body and machine into close proximity she explores the tension between the intellectual perception of the fighter plane and physical experience of the object.
