Performance artist and photographer Suzy Lake began her practice in the early 1960s. Annette Mangaard's in-depth portrait follows the artist and her process over decades of powerful works that address politics, gender, youth, beauty and aging. Lake's extensive body of work includes motion portraits in the Choreographed Puppets series, grid form self-portrait works of the 70s (including the well-known Miss Chatelaine, 1973) and a number of performance works. The artist and her work continue to inspire a succession of artists.

Curators and artists discuss Suzy Lake's impact on contemporary art and feminism. The artist reveals her process as she continues to explore movement and time in her recent environmental portraits. In 2016, Suzy Lake received a Governor General's Award for her work in Visual and Media Arts.
