Planes in London

Here are some photos of Fiona Banner’s marvelous installation of decommissioned fighter planes, Harrier and Jaguar, in the sweeping, heel-clicking vestibules of Tate Britain.  They are strange, improbable, beautiful.  They are not designed for beauty but to kill people, of course.  Nevertheless, we hover around them, creep alongside them, stand below them, gaping up in wonder.   

You can see how the installation came together here, at the Tate Channel: And you can see the work itself until 3 January.
