Biography:
Jeremy Deller was born in 1966. He lives and works in London and is an English conceptual, video and installation artist. Much of Deller’s work is collaborative; it has a strong political aspect, in the subjects dealt with and also the devaluation of artistic ego through the involvement of other people in the creative process.

He won the Turner Prize in 2004, and in 2010 was awarded the Albert Medal of the Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufactures & Commerce (RSA). His work is present, among others, in 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, London, Victoria & Albert Museum, London. He was awarded the Turner Prize in 2004. Exhibitions include : 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).

Jeremy Deller is an English conceptual, video and installation artist. Much of Deller’s work is collaborative; it has a strong political aspect, in the subjects dealt with and also the devaluation of artistic ego through the involvement of other people in the creative process. The great strength of Jeremy Deller’s works is that they directly raise the question of the sacredness and untouchability of spaces, social codes and emblems of power and even more so of political, economic and religious powers. Whether it’s stepping on Stonehenge’s sacred ground, jumping on it or highlighting popular culture, evoking music fans or the British, it’s all about mass creative power. Rather than fearing or suffering the powers in place, it results in a confrontation between history, culture and heritage. The work of Jeremy Deller is to be experienced by all and for all, he invites us to create a participatory work where everyone has a role to play. His works, trans-historical and partisan of free expression as a vector of values ​​and meaning, initiate a dialogue between cultures, people, the past, the present and what could be the future. In a society that claims to open up access to culture and continues to provide a model to follow on what is culturally and intellectually acceptable from what is not, Deller gets away and plays with these societal stereotypes by focusing on subcultures, folklore, men.
