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.”
on view in Patton’s solo exhibition “General Hospital” at the Front, 4100 St. Claude Avenue • New Orleans, LA 70117 • Saturday & Sunday 12 to 5 pm until November 6, 2011
