Pat payne performance & art slides

  1. 1. Her Own Personal Weather System• This installation is a portable performance of post-menopausal hijinks for a solo performer. I emerge frombehind a curtain of prescription pill containers fully encasedin a clear vinyl ‘menopause suit’ complete with heat lamp.• During the performance I simulate all of the symptoms ofmenopause (including, memory loss, hot flashes, loss of sexdrive, dry hair and skin, loss of language) while extolling thevirtues of becoming a techno-crone in the 21st century.• The performance installation pits the beauty of aginggracefully against the medical establishments efforts topathologize and profit from our natural body processes.

  30. 30. Fine Art & InstallationI’m omni-creative - a term I’ve coined that means an artist who enjoys creatingin any and all disciplines.Art is an emotional compulsion, an intense and sometimes unsettling processof self-discovery. Like my performance art, my visual art is nonlinear andspontaneous, but almost always incorporates a pivotal personal event, Afro-Caribbean archetypes of feminine power and rituals of spiritual enlightenment.Typically, I start with the drawing surface oriented in one direction then turn itclockwise, counter-clockwise or upside down, and I continue to add to thecomposition with little regard for gravity, scale or proximity until the image iscomplete. I allow the symbols and archetypical beings that emerge to composetheir own narratives.
