Darren Neave is an artist and researcher currently undertaking a doctoral award at Leeds Beckett University. His practice-led research navigates the preposterousness of olfaction with sculptural resurrection, with links to re-use, ecological demise, corporeal embodiment and memory. He links this research with consumerist delight and disgust, embracing commodification, the written word, neuro-divergency, working-class and a queer rurality.
He currently co-directs the turntable gallery in Grimsby, North East Lincolnshire. The first dedicated space for contemporary art within the town.
He has an MRes from The Royal College of Art in London, An MFA from the University of Lincoln and a BA from the University of Leeds.
He works between Grimsby, London and Leeds.
