Congratulations to the winner of the Turner Prize 2023: Jesse Darling

Jesse Darling works in sculpture, installation, video, drawing, sound, text and performance, using a ‘materialist poetics’ to explore and reimagine the everyday technologies that represent how we live. Darling has often combined industrial materials such as sheet metal and welded steel with everyday objects to explore ideas of the domestic and the institutional, home and state, stability and instability, function and dysfunction, growth and collapse.

Darling was announced as the winner of the £25,000 prize, Tuesday 5 December, at a ceremony presented by musician, creative and broadcaster Tinie Tempah at Eastbourne’s Winter Garden, next door to Towner Eastbourne. Ghislaine Leung, Rory Pilgrim and Barbara Walker were each awarded £10,000.
 
We’re so proud to be hosting the Turner Prize exhibition and extend our congratulations to this year’s exceptional nominees Ghislaine Leung, Rory Pilgrim and Barbara Walker who have all come together to create such a powerful and moving exhibition.

The Turner Prize exhibition is free to attend and continues until 14 April 2024.
