Jesse Darling (born 1981 in Oxford, UK) is a British artist, blogger, writer and Internet extraordinaire who lives and works in London after graduating from the Slade School of Fine Art earlier this year (MFA) and Central St Martin’s College of Art and Design in 2010 (BA). Darling also attended the Theaterschool in Amsterdam in 2003-2004 and the Gerit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam in 1999-2000. Their work centres around explorations of self in the Internet age and profound thinking about queer politics as well as late capitalism. As the artist puts it, their art addresses « sex, labour, work, trauma, alienation, love, death, physical fragility, mental instability, structural precarity: everything I know about, basically. And more that I’m yet to discover. ».
