Jesse Darling’s research is concerned with the attempt to make visible the unconscious of European petro-colonial modernity through the history of technology and the production of ideology, or the objects and ideas with which we make up the world.

His recent solo exhibitions Enclosures at Camden Arts Center (2022) and No Medals No Ribbons at Modern Art Oxford (2022) received great acclaim and in 2023 he was awarded the Turner Prize.

He has also published many texts online and in print, including two chapbooks: VIRGINS, published by Monitor Books (2021), and SHOWGIRLS (Arcadia_Missa publishing, 2023, on the occasion of a Tate film commission for Site Visit).
