Vertigo Art Space is pleased to exhibit Daisy Patton’s sound installation I’m Perfectly Fine Without You, a body of work that explores the subject of absent fathers through the voices of their adult children. Previously shown in Boston, this will be first time it is installed as intended. The audience will be able to immerse themselves in a story-telling-based experience, hearing each speaker grapple with their complicated father. The combination of all the voices sums up a certain perspective that resists ideology and easy categorization. Each visit will yield a unique encounter as the personal confessions play in different sequences.
From Los Angeles, Daisy Patton has a BFA in Studio Arts from the University of Oklahoma with minors in History and Art History and an Honors degree. Her MFA is from The School of the Museum of Fine Arts, a multi-disciplinary program at Boston/Tufts University. With an art practice devoted to history and memory, she has shown nationally in Boston, Washington D.C., and California, with upcoming shows in Austin, TX, and Everett, WA. Currently a resident at RedLine in Denver, Patton is represented by Michael Warren Contemporary.
