My Friend Told Me That I Had Carried Too Many Stones
18 Jan 1997 – 16 Mar 1997
Suzy Lake. Untitled #12 1994-95. Colour photography collage, 50.8 x 40.64 cm.
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.
