In this major new exhibition at Modern Art Oxford, Carey Young (b. 1970, lives and works in London) focuses her astute vision on female identity with works depicting women working in law and industry, which invite viewers into new perceptions of systemic power, gender and justice.
The exhibition includes a new video installation, Appearance (2023), a slow-motion portrait of female judges, along with The Vision Machine (2020), Young’s inventive exploration of female identity in relation to the fields of photography and cinema, and Palais de Justice (2017), a dreamlike evocation of a court or legal system run by women.
An associated selection of Young’s compelling text and photographic works will connect law, power and visual culture.
