“Portrait of an alphabet” photo booth art

Fiona Banner is exploring what’s behind words and letters in her works and found here way to Cargo to shoot “Portrait of an alphabet” in the Photoautomat.

“…is fascinated by the near impossibility of containing action and time in a prescribed form. She is best known for making hand-written and printed texts ‘wordscapes’ or ‘still films’, that retell in her own words entire feature films or sequences of events…


Fiona Banner has been invited to create the next installation for the Tate Britain Duveens Commission 2010, supported by Sotheby’s. Her new work, created especially for the neoclassical Duveen galleries at the heart of Tate Britain, will be unveiled on 28 June 2010 and will be on display until 3 January 2011.
