About

Join us for an exclusive tour of the current exhibition at Modern Art Oxford! 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. Critically acclaimed 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, a renowned brand of photographic gear. Using lenses as a motif, the piece explores women’s identity in relation to mass production and the global dissemination of images. Alongside the films, a selection of Young’s new and existing text and photographic works feature sites including prisons, legal borders and imaginary space, connecting law, architecture, language and the body. Can't wait to see you there!
