Stephanie Patton at The Front

This is a video of artist Stephanie Patton’s video installation “Dream” in her solo exhibition “General Hospital” at The Front in New Orleans.  In the her video, Patton sings the standard “Dream a Little Dream of Me” while swathed in feathers before her wall sculpture “Dream Catcher.”  The video is a funny and tender take on the afterlife, memory and dreams.

Stephanie Patton at The Front

Video of patrons viewing artist Stephanie Patton’s video “Heal” in her solo exhibition “General Hospital” at The Front in New Orleans.  You can hear Patton off camera making quips about the video to the patrons.  In the artist’s full video, she squeezes lemons and makes lemonade for nearly two hours.  At the end of the video, she takes two lemon halves, stuffs them with cotton batting and sews them together to make them “whole” again.  This video captures the lemon “surgery.”

Stephanie Patton’s “General Hospital” at The Front

Lafayette/New Orleans artist Stephanie Patton has crafted a restrained yet moving exhibition with “General Hospital.”  It’s also funny, too!  It is a visual meditation on the healing process, and shouldn’t be missed.  For the closing weekend of the exhibition, Pelican Bomb asked me to review “General Hospital,” and this is the result!
