A film clapperboard being held in front of a person in an ornate gold and black costume, who is sitting with their hands in front of them against a white background.

Focusing on the artist’s multi-layered vision of female identity, this major new exhibition by Carey Young (b. 1970, lives and works in London) offers timely new perspectives on power, gender equality and justice.

The exhibition includes a new video installation, Appearance (2023), a portrait of UK female judges, along with The Vision Machine (2020), Young’s inventive exploration of female identity in relation to photography and cinema. Palais de Justice (2017) is a dreamlike evocation of a court or legal system run by women. Alongside the films, a selection of Young’s compelling text and photographic works will connect law, architecture, language and the body.
