Jesse Darling


Jesse Darling (1981) uses their sculptural practice to explore the destabilization of bodies through conflictual relationships between humans, identities, norms and institutions within our society. They construct a critical space where references to the history of art dialogue with the events of political and everyday life. The work that they have created for Exposé·es consists of two transparent vitrines filled with remains of works by American artists Felix Gonzalez-Torres that were recovered from exhibitions at different institutions and which question the symbolic reach of Gonzalez-Torres’ oeuvre as it is traversed by the HIV/AIDS epidemic as well as in its circulation in today’s art world with its dynamics of ecology and of gentrification.
