In the work of British artist Fiona Banner, opposites play a significant role. This concerns the relationship between words and images, man and machines, but also between the physical world and the virtual one.
Her work comprises sculpture, drawings, video installations, performances, posters and books. The exhibition is Banner’s first major presentation in the Netherlands.
In the vast industrial space of De Pont’s main gallery, Banner creates a theatrical mise-en-scène where towering helicopter rotor blades and re-purposed military plane parts become the unknowing cast.
