Robyn Banks Robyn Banks is a British artist who produces colourful, nostalgic photographs alongside comedic and bizarre moving imagery. Her staged work depicts an imaginative exploration of childhood and the innards of Bank’s imagination through handmade props and upcycled costumes, questioning the confines of self and characterisation. A Killer Date reviews the fear of online dating, whether it’s the slow-burning quiet voice at the back of your mind or a gut-punching shock of adrenaline, A Killer Date is a not-so-gentle reminder to always listen to your instincts. When Banks was asked why she was not a fan of online dating she responded “You don’t know who they are, they could be a serial killer”. That night Banks restlessly dreamt of a torturous evening with a date who shamelessly enjoyed an oversized entree of oozing human body parts. This dream was the catalyst that brought A Killer Date to life with the creation of Philip, a mendacious 23-year-old pencil sharpener whose table manners are equally disturbing as his palate.
