London-based artist Jesse Darlingis presenting solo exhibition The Great Near at London’s Arcadia Missa, opening March 18 and running May 7.
The Great Near will be a collection of wall-based and sculptural pieces in the London space that hosts Darling’s work for the first time in two years, so the press release tells.
The text describes the work that Darling has made in the run up to the show as having imagined the monsters of modernity as characters in a violent fairytale in which the comfort-industrial complex is rolled out as domestic theatre and the parallel spheres of home and homeland are built and upheld.
Darling, who works intensely with materials, capturing what they find in front of them in gestures of homage, affinity and empathy has recently shown in a group show called Alive for an Instant and read at DIY space last month in London.
