Jeremy Deller, The Battle of Orgreave (An Injury to One is an Injury to All), 2001 - last chance to see
Woodhorn Museum presents Jeremy Deller, The Battle of Orgreave (An Injury to One is an Injury to All), 2001. Woodhorn Museum's colliery site provides a poignant environment to experience Jeremy Deller's artwork about the Battle of Orgreave, a violent confrontation between striking miners and police which took place during the 1984/5 Miners' Strike. Artist Jeremy Deller compares the Miners' Strike to the Civil War: "It would not be an exaggeration to say that the strike, like a civil war, had a traumatically divisive effect at all levels of life in the UK." Jeremy Deller's artwork The Battle of Orgreave, was a spectacular recreation of that day, orchestrated for Deller by a historical re-enactment expert. Nearly 1000 people took part in the event, including former miners and former policemen. The exhibition includes a timeline of the miners' strike alongside objects, images and audio recordings from the artist's archive research material and a documentary film of the re-enactment, directed by Mike Figgis. The Battle of Orgreave is part of The Artangel Collection, an initiative to bring outstanding film and video works, commissioned and produced by Artangel, to galleries and museums across the UK. The Artangel Collection has been developed in partnership with Tate, is generously supported by the Esmée Fairnbairn Foundation and The Foyle Foundation and uses public funding from Arts Council England.
