"Carey Young has a long-standing engagement with the choreographies of the law and our position as its subjects. In ‘Appearance’, she documents a world in which female authority wholly controls and enacts judicial disciplines. Palais de Justice (2017) is a film shot in Brussels’s colossal courthouse where Young surreptitiously captured footage over two years, documenting the presence of women at work in the legal system through the female gaze."
