Jeremy Deller

The winner of the 2004 Turner Prize takes a polymathic approach to his work, which includes film, publications, installations and parades, and could be described as an exploration of the British soul (he's probably best known for his 2001 video reenactment of a 1984 coal miners' strike in the U.K.). Along with the 1995 installation I Heart Melancholy, Deller presents new text-based posters as well as biodocs of two notable British eccentrics: Adrian Street, a Welsh wrestler and cross-dresser; and Bruce Lacey, a creator of automatons and a comic performer who once worked with the Beatles, Spike Milligan and Peter Sellers.
