Audio Description Tour: Art Now: Jesse Darling

​Blind and partially sighted visitors are invited to hear the artist in person describing their Art Now display, The Ballad of Saint Jerome

Jesse Darling explores identity through gender, sexuality, disability, love and companionship. The sculptures, drawings and objects reflect the vulnerability of the human body and express the desire to resist the constraints imposed on our lives by social and political forces.​

Creating sculptures from the cabinets that are used to exhibit artworks, Darling subverts the conventions of museum display. Their approach questions how we perceive objects, and how meaning and value are assigned through the authority of institutions.

Jesse Darling lives and works in Berlin and London.
