Jeremy Deller lives and works in London and studied art history at the University of London's Courtauld Institute of Art. In 2004 he was awarded the Turner Prize. He works with a variety of media, including video, sculpture, and graphic art, and his work emphasizes collaborative projects, reenactments, and public art, through which he has reflected on popular culture in postindustrial England.
His most important projects include: Acid Brass (1997), The Battle of Orgreave (2001), Procession (2009), and Sacrilege (2012). Some of his most outstanding exhibitions include English Magic for the British Pavilion at the 55th Venice Biennale (2013), the retrospective Joy in People (Hayward Gallery, 2012), and Carte blanche a Jeremy Deller (Palais de Tokyo, Paris, 2008). He has also developed remarkable curatorial projects, including All That Is Solid Melts Into Air (2013), The Bruce Lacey Experience (2012), and Love is Enough (2014).
