About the work
The Ballad of Accounting is one of a new body of etchings produced during their Fellowship. The work sees reoccurring imagery used by Darling throughout their exhibition Enclosures of hands and tools which speak to scripts of labour, both gendered and manual, identity, coalition building and collectivity. The asemic writing alludes to systems of counting and accounting - death tolls that accrete; the marks of a society surveyed, policed and privatised and systems and people on the brink of exhaustion and collapse.
