Remapping social and cultural territories, Turner Prize-winning artist Jeremy Deller (born 1966) has alternately taken on the roles of artistic producer, publisher, film-maker, collaborator, curator, parade organizer and cultural archivist. Over the past two decades, he has been a pioneering and highly influential figure in contemporary art, helping to rewrite the rules of artistic practice with his extraordinary collaborative interventions, which have included parades, battle re-enactments and exhibitions of folk art. This comprehensive catalogue is published for Deller’s first major survey exhibition. Employing a wealth of ephemera, critical writing and documentary and artwork photography, this beautiful book is the first and only complete survey of the artist’s multifaceted practice.

Ever since completing his “Manchester Procession” (2009), British artist Jeremy Deller (born 1966) has described his practice as “Social Surrealism”: “It’s going back to the original idea of carnival and procession, inverting reality and changing reality if only for a day or a week...” For more than a decade, Deller has been at the forefront of a generation of artists who have reimagined the possibilities of public space, orchestrating real life scenarios to illuminate larger social realities. His best known work is the 2001 “Battle of Orgreave” project, for which he collaborated with re-enactment societies to recreate a 1984 confrontation between striking British miners and police. On September 15 2010, Robert Eikmeyer and Alistair Hudson met Deller in his flat in London to talk about his work. This audio CD documents their conversation.

Taking Neil Young's often-quoted line from the song "Pocahontas" on his 1979 masterwork, Rust Never Sleeps, English artist Jeremy Deller's exhibition Marlon Brando, Pocahontas, And Me explores some wide-ranging themes shared by Deller and Young, including American identity, history, politics, war, medical innovation, information technologies and music. This volume presents installation shots of the exhibition at the Aspen Art Museum--which incorporates work from a diverse roster of historical and contemporary artists including Jeff Blankfort, George Catlin, Paul Chan, Mark Dion, Sam Durant, Joseph Clarence Fornelli, Ilka Hartmann, William Henry Jackson, Koba (Wild Horse), An-My Lê, Alfred Jacob Miller, Charles Pollock and Sean Snyder--as well as reference illustrations and an interview between Deller and Aspen Art Museum Director and Chief Curator Heidi Zuckerman Jacobson.
Jeremy Deller was born in London in 1966. He won the Turner Prize in 2004 for Memory Bucket, his documentary about George W. Bush's hometown, Crawford, Texas.
The Vinyl Factory is proud to announce an exclusive art and music collaboration with Turner Prize-winning artist Jeremy Deller, coinciding with his first major retrospective solo show at the Hayward Gallery, opening 22 February 2012.
The vinyl release features a live recording performed by Chuck, a singer and musician who often plays along the South Bank. Deller heard him playing, and liked his take on classic songs, compounding his ongoing interest in cover versions, “that surprise you, and that add to songs we already know”.
Deller invited Chuck to a recording studio in West London, where they recorded two tracks live, direct-to-disc. Chuck recorded two cover versions, one of Johnny Cash’s 'Folsom Prison Blues' and one of 'Island in the Sun', by Harry Belafonte.
On the front of each sleeve will be an individually printed 13cm square photograph of Chuck performing on the Southbank, taken by Jeremy Deller, hand-dipped into the centre of each cover. The record will be released on 180-gram heavyweight vinyl, cut at 45rpm, pressed on the EMI 1400 in Hayes, Middlesex. Each copy of this edition of 100 will be hand signed by Jeremy Deller and Chuck.
Product Details: * Limited edition of 100 hand-signed and numbered copies * Pristine white Colorplan sleeve with hand-dipped Jeremy Deller photograph * 180-gram heavyweight white vinyl containing 2 songs peformed by Chuck, cut direct to vinyl at Electric Mastering, London
Deller has helped to rewrite the rules of contemporary art for the past two decades, moving seamlessly from artistic producer, publisher, filmmaker, collaborator and archivist. His interest in the convergence of art and music is evident in the show, from his 1997 Acid Brass work, where traditional brass bands performed arrangements of acid house music, to The Uses of Literacy, an exhibition created by fans of the Manic Street Preachers which brings together paintings, collages, drawings, books, poetry and ephemera inspired by the band’s lyrics.
