Lisa Steele's Birthday Suit -- with Scars and Defects is featured as part of the AGO's Ecsatic Memory series.

The video involves the artist on her 20th birthday going over the scars on her body and recounting where the came from and when she got them.

The idea behind the Ecstatic Memory series is to show video art in a venue that would give it the same status as a sculpture or painting.
