work in collection

Banner’s practice encompasses sculpture, drawing, installation, bookmaking and performance, she has often returned to language and its physical form, from creating sculptural full-stops which literally punctuate gallery spaces to huge wall drawings describing in words everything from apopular films to The Battle of Hastings. Later works use military airplane parts and even whole fighterplanes; instruments of war which the artist sees as the result of language's failure.
