Jesse Darling Wins Turner Prize 2023
Congratulations to Docent artist, Jesse Darling, represented by Arcadia Missa, Sultana, and Chapter NY on winning the Turner Prize 2023 ! The Turner Prize 2023 exhibition is on view at Towner Eastbourne through April 14, 2024, featuring a site-specific sculptural installation of new works by the artist.
Jesse Darling is an artist who works across different disciplines to explore how societal and political factors shape our bodies. Drawing on personal experiences and historical narratives, Darling examines the vulnerability of the human body and how it relates to larger structures and civilizations.
Darling's work features a range of objects, including consumer goods, support devices, religious items, construction materials, fictional characters, and mythical symbols. Through recontextualization, Darling’s work expresses the fragility and need for care and healing of the objects, which are both wounded and liberated.
