Jesse Darling lives and works in Berlin. Darling works across sculpture, installation, film, sound and performance.
Drawing on personal experiences as well as history and counter histories, their work addresses the fallibility, adaptability and vulnerability of living being, societies and technologies. Their work deals with the condition of being a body caught in the structures of the social and material world. In their sculptural and 2-dimensional objects, the artist addresses the body as both physically vulnerable – infirm or dysfunctional, or as the target of structural violence – and also as a site of agency and resistance despite everything.
The Freelands Lomax Ceramics Fellowship supports emerging artists working with clay. Between 2017-21, the Fellowship has offered three six month part-time residencies at Camden Arts Centre with an exhibition in the following year.
