Robert Getting His Nipple Pierced at the Chelsea Hotel in 1970. A 33 minute film by Sandy Daley with Patti’s seemingly spontaneous and random dialogue as the soundtrack.

Tattoo a film by Sandy Daley of Patti Getting Her Knee tattooed in 1973 at the Chelsea Hotel by the artist Valli. Mostly silent but Patti recites her poem Edie Sedgewick 1973

Still Moving – Amy Longsdorf’s review in her Patti fanzine stated “Still Moving” was the last movie that Patti made (article written in 1980). Robert Mapplethorpe directed this strange and oddly riveting film. During the course of the movie’s 12 minutes, Patti rambles on random subjects, changes black and white clothes, pulls down curtains, speaks to a statue of Satan that ends crashing to the floor. But all these events seem to make sense in some menacing way. And the film really does “capture Patti.” Robert said in the LA Times “I was trying to make a filmic portrait to capture the verbalisation of her poetry and literature but it never happened. Sometimes Patti’s art just spills out of her when she’s creating, like she’s in a trance. But she never got to that schizophrenic stage of pure inspiration with the cameraman and all the lights around.”

The Y Portfolio by Robert Mapplethorpe, Patti wrote the text.

Poster and VHS PAL of Blank Generation made by Amos Poe & Ivan Kral. Patti’s talking opens and closes the 55 minute film.
