About the artist and the exhibition

Over the last ten years Jesse Darling (b. Oxford, UK) has explored how systems of power – such as government, religion, ideology, empire and technology – can be as fragile and contingent as mortal bodies.

Working across sculpture, installation, video, drawing and text, their distinctive artworks expose contradictions held within dominant narratives about the world, our bodies, and our lives together. Darling’s work often combines industrial materials with everyday objects to evoke counter histories and ideas of instability and dysfunction. Their work offers powerful models for rethinking the concept of resistance, where vulnerability is seen as a strength rather than a weakness.


No Medals No Ribbons is on display at Modern Art Oxford until 1 May. Find out more about the exhibition and plan your visit.
