Jeremy Deller

Interviewed by Lucy Dusgate

Art Is Magic is Turner Prize winning artist Jeremy Deller’s attempt to connect the key works of his career with the art, pop music, film, politics and history that have inspired them. These include his inflatable Stonehenge, his miners’ strike film The Battle of Orgreave, bats, and hen harriers pecking out the eyes of a Tory MP (featured in his mural against grouse shooting created for the Venice Biennale).

His projects, such as We’re Here Because We’re Here (2016) and the documentary Everybody in the Place: An Incomplete History of Britain 1984–1992 (2019), have influenced the conventional map of contemporary art.
