Harrier and Jaguar, a grand scale art installation by artist Fiona Banner in the main space Duveen Galleries in Tate Britain gallery. The two stripped down decommissioned fighter jets dominate these great spaces. A Harrier Jump Jet, suspended from the ceiling painted with feint feathers, and the Jaguar, stripped of all ot's paint and polished to a gleaming high silver. Says the artist: "I remember long sublime walks in the Welsh mountains with my father, when suddenly a fighter plane would rip through the sky , and shatter everything. It was so exciting, loud and overwhelming. It would really take our breath away. The sound would arrive from nowhere, all you would see was a shadow and then the plane was gone. At the time the Jump Jets were at the cutting edge of technology but to me they were like dinosaurs, prehistoric, from a time before words."
