My Friend Told Me That I Had Carried Too Many Stones

January 18, 1997 - March 16, 1997


Curator:
Year 1997 Theme Feminisms, Gender & Sexuality, Photography

Suzy Lake’s new work framed personal actions staged for the camera, reminiscent of her body-centred images of the 1970s and early 1980s. Her small constructions in plaster and photo-collage incorporated photographs of herself performing apparently mundane gestures. Presented in series, these icon-like objects evoked complex inner states.

A major proponent of women’s artmaking in the 1970s, Lake gave a well-attended talk on the new work.
