To coincide with the exhibition by Fiona Banner at Frith Street Gallery the artist has published a new book titled ‘PERIOD’, riffing on the American vernacular for the full stop – a title that links the gendering of objects and mediums, and language with the idea of cycles of time, the body, and specific historicals.
The full stops in this book have featured in works by Fiona Banner aka The Vanity Press. They are each typeset in 1900 pt and positioned on the page according to the natural baseline of each font. The paintings are reproduced at 50% actual size. They are found paintings of ships at sea, that have been over-painted by Banner.
