Jesse Darling @ Lima Zulu, Jan 23

, 21 January 2014

Jesse Darling‘s solo exhibition NOT LONG NOW is opening at London’s Lima Zulu on January 23.

Ever the artist to disrupt the drive to a dialectic, the accompanying blurb for the exhibition is drawn from a dummy text Lorem Ipsum generator and translated from Latin “in collaboration with” Google Translate to yield some eerily relevant references to “embedded poverty”, “the torturer’s television station” and “the United States Bureau of the great”. Considering that Darling’s work concerns itself with all sorts of rupture, not least symbolised by the destruction of the World Trade Centre and imperialism as we know it, the text stands as an apt analogy drawing from the dead Roman Empire to the current US one, with Google as its cypher.
