Carey Young: Appearance

25 March – 2 July 2023




Focusing on the artist’s multi-layered vision of female identity, this major new exhibition by Carey Young builds on her 20 year research into law and offers timely new perspectives on power, gender and justice. The show centres on three major video pieces, plus associated works in photography and text. In particular, 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.
