Art stripped bare - Fiona Banner on the nude

May 19, 2009 by Kay

In an article for The Guardian, Fiona Banner discusses the aims and motivations for her unusual channel of art; words. In her atmospheric acts in front of a live audience, Banner invites an inexperienced nude model to pose whilst she depicts the individual with words on a canvas. She describes her unique voyeuristic performances as ‘a bit of theatre. It’s dead serious, but tongue in cheek as well.’ To read the full article in the Guardian, click here. Other Criteria will be publishing 'Performance Nude' by Fiona Banner in Autumn 2009.
