Fiona Banner

Much of Banner’s work explores the problems and possibilities of written language.  Her early work took the form of ‘wordscapes’ or ‘still films’ – blow-by-blow accounts written in her own words of feature films, (whose subjects range from war to porn) or sequences of events.  These pieces took the form of solid single blocks of text, often the same shape and size as a cinema screen.
