About this deal

All publications registered with an ISBN must be deposited in the Legal Deposit Office of The British Library, yet the singularity of Banner’s project makes this impossible. Banner is interested in the tradition of the nude and the issues that surround its depiction, such as questions about gender and the history of description per se.

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. For example, Top Gun 1994 (Tate T13203) is a billboard-sized unedited written account of the action in the movie of the same name starring Tom Cruise, while Break Point 1998 (Tate T07501) is based on the chase scene in Kathryn Bigelow’s cult film Point Break (1991).This flexibility of display highlights the ways in which the nude can be addressed as person, object or painting. It also refers to the elusive nature of description, the limiting as well as the communicating force of language and Banner’s interest in the harnessing of uncontained forces that spill out.

Furthermore this verbal encounter reflects her interest in the act of reading which draws together the processes of looking and meaning.

In the lower gallery are a series of books and prints selected from Banner’s own publishing imprint, The Vanity Press. 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. Fiona Banner creates nude studies from life, transcribing physical scenarios into verbal descriptions.

These pieces took the form of solid single blocks of text, often the same shape and size as a cinema screen. Banner is best known for her ‘wordscapes’, highly subjective written accounts that often retell entire Hollywood feature films or sequences of events. 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. Jane’s All the World’s Aircraft represents a shared knowledge, beyond political and national boundaries.She has an onlyfans where she posts her sexually explicit adult nsfw content such as nudes, naked modeling, pussy and asshole teasing photos as well as full frontal nudes reddit leaked video. This work is part of a portfolio of twelve prints by British artists that was commissioned by the London Organising Committee of the Olympic Games and Paralympic Games to commemorate the 2012 Olympic Games in London. Often using parts of military aircraft as the support for these descriptions, Banner juxtaposes the brutal and the sensual, performing an almost complete cycle of intimacy and alienation. The title of the work refers to the expressive and experimental nature of the piece with its drips and washes of ink. The density of the black and white lettering and discrepancies between line widths, combined with the overall scale of the piece which exceeds human height, suggests a relationship between the image of the nude and the artist or viewer’s body.

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. Banner’s print Superhuman Nude is taken from a nude study of a Paralympic athlete wearing a prosthetic leg.

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. In this iconic image, we witness the fearless Fiona Richmond, renowned actress and symbol of liberation, fearlessly horse riding through London's bustling West End. This picture immortalizes not only her audacious spirit but also represents a pivotal moment in cinematic history when nudity became more accepted as an art form rather than mere titillation.
