Casey Larkin Mazer Carsel is a New Zealand-born, Jewish editor, writer, and artist. Her 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? Her work is often laced with dark humour as she explores themes such as grief, storytelling, ritual, and culturally specific jokes.
She wants you to know that the things that are funny and the things that are sad are usually the same things.
In 2019 she co-founded [Plates: An Experimental Journal] with Unyimeabasi Udoh.
