|Palais de Justice (2017) is a video installation which Carey Young shot covertly at the Palais de Justice in Brussels. Contradicting the familiar patriarchal culture of law, the camera depicts female judges and lawyers at court, filmed through a lens-like series of circular windows in courtroom doors. Young subtly builds a counter-narrative: a legal system seemingly centred on, and perhaps controlled by women, as if male presence may be optional or unnecessary in this particular future. This 18-minute piece develops and extends the body of law-related artwork which Carey Young has developed over the past seventeen years into timely concerns with gender, power and the cinematic.
At La Loge, the piece will form a unique relationship with the building’s identity and history as a former Masonic temple. Read more
