Casey Larkin Mazer Carsel is a New Zealand-born, Jewish editor, writer, and artist whose practice focuses on how communal narratives are constructed and passed down through generations and across the world, and how these stories shape identities and make connections. What is held onto? What is forgotten? What is lost in translation? Carsel’s work is often laced with dark humour through themes such as grief, storytelling, ritual, and culturally specific jokes.
You should know that the things that are funny and the things that are sad are usually the same things.
In 2019 Carsel co-founded [Plates: An Experimental Journal] with Unyimeabasi Udoh.
