DELLER, Jeremy and Alan KANE. Folk Archive: Contemporary Popular Art from the UK.

(London): Book Works, 2005. Second edition. Octavo. 156 pages. Treading the fine line between art and anthropology, Deller and Kane selected over 280 elements over a period of six years to form an archive, which provides a snapshot of the state of contemporary folk art in the UK. It represents both artists’ long-term interests in creative practices and artefacts from outside the traditional art world. Illustrated throughout the volume demonstrates through its quirkiness- the presentation of hand crafted objects, festivals, and the aspirations of people, that art is not something removed from our daily lives. A very good copy in wrappers.
