Fiona Banner's 'Buoys Boys' at De La Warr Pavilion
English artist Fiona Banner's "Buoys Boys" is scheduled to run at the De La Warr Pavilion, United Kingdom, from September 24 through January 8, 2017. The exhibition includes site-specific new work by the artist both inside and outside the gallery. The theme of the exhibition centers on the artist's interest in conflict and language and is a play on digital versus material experiences.
The exhibition features her "Full Stop" sculptures, a sequence of full stops from typefaces blown up in proportion, consisting of large helium-filled inflatables. They will also be installed and float from the roof of the pavilion representing floating buoys. The sculptures also manifest in "Ha-ha" and will be placed as a panoramic window installation spanning the length of the gallery. Banner will also present a series of films and posters related to her experimental publishing activity. Through her artwork, Banner has approached the idea of language and conflict and how historical events are fictionalized over time.
