Fiona Banner: Font BookFiona Banner: Font Book

Lynn Valley No. 11

Published by The Vanity Press/Bywater Bros. Editions/Presentation House Gallery.
Edited by Roger Bywater, Reid Shier.

British artist Fiona Banner (born 1966) recently designed her own font, utilizing an amalgamation of typefaces she had employed in a variety of text-based artworks. In the course of creating this font, Banner became fascinated with the double meaning of the word itself. In addition to a typeface, a font is also a receptacle for holy water, used, chiefly, in baptismal ceremonies, with religious associations derived from an etymological root in Old English and Latin, which roughly translate as “a fountain, a spring, or a source.” Banner began amassing images of baptismal and holy-water fonts from churches around the world. Font Book presents the full spectrum of her collection. Resembling something of a supply catalog for the devoted, this compendium presents every baptismal font configuration imaginable, along with accompanying church names and location specs.

Heart of DarknessHeart of Darkness

Published by Four Corners Books.
By Joseph Conrad. Project by Fiona Banner. Photographs by Paolo Pellegrin.

For the latest in the Four Corners Familiars series, artist Fiona Banner (born 1966) recasts Joseph Conrad’s novella Heart of Darkness as a luxury magazine with new photographs by Magnum photographer Paolo Pellegrin. First published in 1899, Heart of Darkness is a story of trade and corruption that proceeds from a boat moored on the banks of the Thames into the heart of the Congo. For her new edition, Banner commissioned Pellegrin, a conflict photographer who has worked extensively in the Congo, to photograph London’s financial center, its streets and trading floors, its costumes and strip clubs—the City of London as seen by a veteran war photographer. The collaboration between Banner and Pellegrin emerged from an initial invitation from Peer, London, to work with the collection of the Archive of Modern Conflict; a selection of Pellegrin’s images are now part of the Archive, filed under "Heart of Darkness, 2014."

Fiona Banner: Performance NudeFiona Banner: Performance Nude

Published by Other Criteria Books.

From 'The Birth of Venus' to art school classrooms across the globe, artists have, over time, employed life models in an attempt to capture the essence of the female nude. One such artist is Fiona Banner. As this book Performance Nude illustrates, Banner uses paint and line to portray her models; however, she renders them not in figurative gestures, but in words. Straying further from traditional methods, she specifically uses 'real' women rather than practiced life models as her subject, choosing to capture the strain and tension created in the room by the presence of a novice. Whatever discomfort is revealed in the relationship is tested further by introducing an audience to the room and filming the scene for up to an hour. The effect is at timespoetic, at others searching and critical. By portraying her nudes in this way, Banner questions the difference between looking and perceiving; the separation between experiencing something, and the language we use to describe it.
