ACCA is pleased to announce a new limited-edition artwork by award-winning British artist Jeremy Deller, produced to coincide with Jeremy Deller: Father and Son, and available exclusively via the ACCA Shop.
The first commission by the artist in Australia, Father and Son is a time-based sculptural installation in the form of public vigil. The project follows Deller’s long history of internationally renowned projects across video, sculpture, installation and events, including We’re here because we’re here 2016, a commemorative event that took place across Britain on the 100th anniversary of the first day of the Battle of the Somme, and The Battle of Orgreave 2001, a site-specific performance that recreated the clash between police and miners during the Miners’ Strike of 1984-85. In 2013, Deller represented Great Britain with the exhibition English Magic at the 55th Venice Biennale, following the career retrospective Joy in People, presented at the Hayward Gallery, London in 2012.
Jeremy Deller is considered one of the world’s most significant contemporary artists. Born in London in 1966, Deller studied art history at The Courtauld Institute of Art (University of London) and the University of Sussex. Appointed a Trustee of the Tate Gallery in 2007, Deller was awarded the Albert Medal of the Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufactures & Commerce in 2010, for ‘creating art that encourages public responses and creativity’.
