Biography:
Jeremy Deller was born in 1966. He lives and works in London. His work is present, among others, by the following institutions: FNAC, Paris; FRAC Nord-Pas-De-Calais; FRAC Pays de la Loire; FRAC Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur, Musée des Arts Contemporains, Grand-Hornu, Tate Modern, Londres, Victoria & Albert Museum, Londres. Il a reçu le Turner Prize en 2004. Exhibitions : English Magic, British Pavilion, 55th Venice Biennale; Sacrilege, Esplanade des Invalides, Projet Hors les Murs, FIAC 2012; Joy In People, Hayward Gallery, Londres (2012); D’une révolution à l’autre, Carte Blanche à Jeremy Deller, Palais de Tokyo, Paris (2008).

However, the real strength of Jeremy Deller’s works resides in their ability to pinpoint questions on sanctity and the prohibition to enter certain monuments or touch and manipulate certain emblems and social codes, especially those liked to political, economic and religious powers. By treading the sacred soil of Stonehenge in a frenzy of jumps, or acknowledging popular culture by mentioning music fans or British people gathered in Buckingham on the day of the death- announcement of Princess Diana, the idea is to foster the birth of the creative power of a crowd. To fight the fear and submission imposed by ruling powers by provoking a confrontation between history, culture and heritage. Jeremy Deller’s work is to be experienced and appreciated by everyone. He invites us to create a participative work in which we can all play a role. His works, trans-historical and presenting freedom of expression as social vector of sense and values, initiate a dialogue between cultures, people, past, present and what the future could be.
In a society that claims to provide access to culture to everybody but never ceases to indicate which are the models that we should follow, what is culturally and intellectually acceptable and what isn’t, Jeremy Deller has broken free by starting to play with social stereotypes, by taking an interest in sub-cultures, folklores, people, all that is human as a matter of fact.
