Jeremy Deller: English Magic

Jeremy Deller: English Magic
Library Shelf Location 18.DELL
Publication Date 2013
Description English Magic has been published alongside Turner prize-winning artist Jeremy Deller's British Pavilion exhibition at the Venice Biennale in 2013 (1 June – 24 November), and reflects the roots of much of Deller’s work, focusing on British society – its people, icons, myths, folklore and its cultural and political history. He weaves together high and low, popular and rarefied to create unique and thought provoking work. English Magic is also a new film work by Deller which forms a major part of his exhibition for the British Pavilion. The film brings together many of the ideas behind the works in the Pavilion, featuring visual and thematic elements that reflect the artist's interest in the diverse nature of British society and its broad cultural, socio-political and economic history. The exhibition will tour the UK in 2014 to the William Morris Gallery, London Borough of Waltham Forest; Bristol Museum and Art Gallery; and Turner Contemporary, Margate. This official catalogue (available in four different colour covers) features a new essay by Hal Foster and an interview between Jeremy Deller, Chris Dercon and John Paul Lynch.
