About the artist:

Born 1966 Merseyside, Fiona Banner lives and works in London. Graduated from Kingston University, and completed her MA at Goldsmith College (1993).

Banner is part of the group known as YBA or Young British Artists and is a sculptor and conceptual artist. Her work centres on the problems and possibilities of language, both written and metaphorical. She juxtaposes the brutal and the sensual, performing a complete cycle of intimacy, attraction and alienation. In 1977, she started working under the title The Vanity Press, and under this imprint has published books, objects and performances.

Her works are held in public and private collections including Museum of Modern Art, New York; the Philadelphia Museum of Art; the Art’s Council of England; Tate Gallery, London; and Walker Art Gallery, Minneapolis.

Auction close and bidder extension

The auction closes at 9pm, Mon 5th July. However, if a bid is placed in the last two minutes, the auction end time will extend on that lot for an additional two minutes, or until all bidding has ceased. This is called Popcorn Bidding or Bidder Extension and gives all bidders an equal chance of winning.

Bid Increments

£50 increments for bids of £300 – £1,000

£100 increments for bids of £1,000 – £2,000

£250 increments for bids of £2,000 – £5,000

£500 increments for bids of £5,000 plus

Maximum bids

You are more likely to be the winning bidder if at the outset you place a maximum bid i.e. the maximum amount you are willing to pay for the work. Your maximum bid is not visible to other bidders. If another bidder exceeds your maximum bid you will receive an automatic notification. If you have placed a maximum bid the auction site will automatically place bids on your behalf, but only as much is necessary to make sure that you remain the highest bidder, until it reaches your maximum bid. These automatic bids are placed in increments, as shown above.
