‘Industrial finds’ artist wins Turner

Jesse Darling, who creates his installations often using found objects and materials such as hazard tape, office files and lumps of concrete, has won this year’s £25,000 Turner Prize.

In his work he examines societal breakdown and notions of labour, class, Britishness and power. Born in Oxford Darling, 42, is a graduate of Central St Martins and the Slade 

He beat Ghislaine Leung, Rory Pilgrim and Barbara Walker who were also shortlisted.
