Sedition is pleased to partner with Own Art and TheSpace to present a new digital edition by Turner Prize winning artist, Jeremy Deller. To celebrate their 10th anniversary, Own Art has commissioned Deller to produce an artwork based on a painting by Stuart Hughes that was originally made for the British Pavilion of the Venice Biennale 2013 as part of his touring exhibition English Magic.
English Magic reflects the roots of much of Deller’s work, focusing on British society. William Morris permeates the exhibition – In English Magic, Deller brings Morris “back from the dead”, encouraging us to turn the mirror on ourselves and ask questions of the society in which we live – William Morris Gallery.
Own Art, the organisation the helps make art buying easy and affordable through interest free loans, along with TheSpace, a newly re-launched online arts initiative supported by the Arts Council England and the BBC, will offer a series of digital images by Jeremy Deller for free to their members. The artwork will launch on Sedition on 9th July 2014. To register to receive a digital edition by Jeremy Deller, sign-up to TheSpace newsletter and follow the instructions in the confirmation email.
The digital images are part of a fully animated artwork, which will be presented on 19th July on TheSpace and on the large screens at the London Westfield sites.
