Carey Young @ Modern Art Oxford

25 March 2023 - 2 July 2023

Carey Young explores relations between women, the camera and systems of power.

The show centres on a series of three video works with interrelated themes. Young’s new commission Appearance (2023) is a silent video portrait of fifteen female judges, diverse in seniority, age and ethnicity, which explores their individuality and nuanced differences, as well as the power relations between judge and camera.  Video installation Palais de Justice (2017) evokes an imaginary legal system controlled by women; and The Vision Machine (2020) is a study of female lens-makers at the factory of SIGMA Corporation.  Using lenses as a motif, the piece explores women’s identity in relation to mass production and the global dissemination of images.
