Jesse Darling: No Medals No Ribbons

This major solo exhibition by Jesse Darling (b. Oxford, lives and works in Berlin) showcases influential works by the artist from the last ten years, arranging new and existing work into themes for the first time.

Through installation, video, drawing, text, and sculpture, Darling works to expose how the systems of power –  government, religion, ideology, technology and empire – can be as fragile and precarious as mortal bodies.

Darling questions dominant narratives about the world and our lives together by making ordinary objects appear strange. By doing this, the artist invites us to look upon materials, histories and mythologies anew, and to reflect on the mortality within everything – where impermanence is the essential condition that binds us together.
