About the artwork

Studio Voltaire presents Jeremy Deller’s limited edition shopper, which plays tribute to the influential musician David Bowie. Produced in London.

Bowie was a major component in Deller’s solo presentation at the Venice Biennale in 2013. Looking at the relationship between flamboyant creativity and social change, the artist mapped Bowie’s tour as Ziggy Stardust across the UK in the early 1970s alongside photographs of key moments of political and social upheaval such as industrial action and IRA bombings from the same period.

About the artist

Deller’s multi-faceted practice incorporates forms of social investigation and archival research, often celebrating British popular and vernacular culture. Previous works and projects have referenced a wide range of cultural figures including Bryan Ferry, Bruce Lacey, William Morris, Prince Harry and Adrian Street.

Recent solo exhibitions and projects include MUCA, Mexico City (2015), Turner Contemporary, Margate (2014), Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington DC (2014) and Weils Centre for Contemporary Art, Brussels (2012). The artist represented Britain in the Venice Biennale in 2013 and won the Turner Prize in 2004.

Deller is represented by The Modern Institute, Glasgow; Art Concept, Paris and Gavin Brown's enterprise, New York.
