Jesse Darling: The Ballad of Saint Jerome, 22 Sep 2018 — 24 Feb 2019

Jesse Darling: The Ballad of Saint Jerome

Tate Britain, Millbank

Jesse Darling‘s exhibited works revisit the story of Saint Jerome and the lion, very popular during the Renaissance period, which the artist interprets as a narration about power and healing, which raises questions about control, captivity and subjugation of others. To retell the ancient story, Darling fills the spaces of the gallery with new works made from everyday objects and materials. Creating sculptures from the cabinets that are used to exhibit artworks, Darling subverts the conventions of museum display.

Jesse Darling’s sculptures, drawings and objects often reflect the vulnerability of the human body, and express the desire to resist the constraints imposed on our lives by social and political forces.
