97 Jane’s All the World’s Aircraft books, 22 x 35 x 375 cm
1909 – 2011 is a four metre stack of Jane’s All the World’s Aircraft books, the iconic compendium for the aeronautical industry. Collecting is a recurrent theme in Banner’s work, and she has compiled this collection over a period of twenty years. Jane’s All the World’s Aircraft represents a shared knowledge, beyond political and national boundaries. As a collection it embodies the history of manned flight and the development of an unwieldy military industry. Now as a very grounded, yet slightly implausible tower, the books have been transformed, through the simplest of means, from a library, list and collection into a piece of sculpture.
