Fiona Banner in De Pont museum

00:15:25 1216 De Pont museum
In the work of British artist Fiona Banner, opposites play a significant role. The exhibition is Banner’s first major presentation in the Netherlands.


Fiona Banner (Merseyside, 1966) researches 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’s title Runway (AW17), refers to a runway as a space of performance, evoking the architecture of fashion shows, as well as a space associated with aircraft. By deploying the double meaning she draws parallels between a catwalk show, the area of the military aeroplanes and the theatre of the exhibition space.
