Across his career to date, Darren has been commissioned to produce video work and animated content on behalf of other contemporary artists. In recent years he has worked with Anna Barham, Dr Sharon Kivland, Julie Westerman and TC McCormack.

TC McCormack is based in London. His practice incorporates subjects as diverse as the contradictions of modernism’s heritage; in design and architecture, the phenomenon of resistance space, aesthetics of cultural memory and the possibility of language to delineate the relational affinities of forms, while acknowledging the shifting nature of subjectivity and the problems of interpretation. His work takes a range of outcomes, often incorporating video, photography, collage and text; this multidisciplinary approach enables him to inhabit a number of artistic strategies. Curatorial practice as a genre, is an ongoing enquiry within his research. He recently curatored The Absolute Outside, a group exhibition at Spor Klübü, Berlin. He is an associate of Radical Praxes, a curatorial association; has the aim to generate dialogue and experimentation.
