3. FIONA BANNER & PETER VOSS-KNUDE
SIDE STEP: PIO ABAD

07.10.17 – 02.12.17
Opening 07.10.17 from 17:30

An affinity for the semiotics of conflict becomes immediately apparent in Last Tango’s fourth exhibition: Fiona Banner with her longstanding use of found and transformed military aircraft to examine the ways in which conflict is mythologised through popular culture and Peter Voss-Knude with his work that musically relates to the life of the soldier. The material and the human aspects of conflict are juxtaposed wherein typically masculine iconographies are sampled and reified into forms and constellations that are of a sensuous nature. Another cornerstone of the exhibition is language with both artists exploring the bewilderment of non-understanding and the complexity of the spoken and written word: how it serves us, be it through the flow of pop lyrics or the playfulness of sculptural full stops. The expressive potential of the body is yet another motif made manifest through the uniform of the pinstripe, a body armour, a jockstrap, or a pair of breasts.
