Jeremy Deller, Metal
Presented by Metal, With A Little Help from My Friends is a song about friendship, loneliness and love. By 1967 The Beatles were the most famous people in the world no doubt a totally alienating experience considering their youth, naturally they depended greatly on each other and on a few trusted friends for support.
The relationship between the individual and society is a powerful theme in the work of Turner Prize-winning conceptual artist Jeremy Deller and in his response to this song, he has made two public art commissions that examine the nature of friendship and self-sacrifice, not just with those we know but also between strangers.
Get ready for an intriguing few weeks.
