Carey Young (born 1970) is a visual artist who has developed her artistic practice from a cross-fertilization of disciplines including economics, law, politics, science and communication. The tools of these different fields act as material for her installations, text works and photographs, as well as for videos in which absurd relationships develop between the performer and the rhetoric of political, commercial or legal discourse. Young's work often develops from within the particular cultures she explores. She has often immersed herself in the business or legal worlds, donning the appropriate attire and enacting recommended scenarios in order to examine and question the reach of each institution's power and its ability to shape our contemporary reality.
