What is it?
Eastside Projects presents the debut of Memento Park, a major touring solo show by Carey Young commissioned in conjunction with Cornerhouse, Manchester and mima, Middlesbrough. A new video commission, Memento Park (2010), is central to the exhibition, which surveys a decade of the artist’s practice, including a number of key video works and recent photographic, text and telephone works.
Carey Young’s celebrated and pioneering work focuses on the interconnections between economic systems, legal language and contemporary culture. Using a variety of media and settings she often uses found tools, language and training processes from the worlds of the multinational corporation and global law firm, altering them to create fictional and absurd scenarios which explore notions of performance, autonomy, criticality and imagination.
