Take My Breath Away



Last week I went to see Fiona Banner's new work at Tate Britain - Harrier and Jaguar. Both these fighter planes have been reassembled in the Duveen galleries. The Jaguar plane lies flipped on its back, looking like it's crash landed right onto the gallery floor. Meanwhile the Harrier jet hangs with its nose hovering above the floor appearing more like a trussed bird than a deadly weapon. Fiona Banner, like countless others, must be a Tom Cruise fan and as for me all I can say about her artworks is that they 'Take My Breath Away'.
