A collaboration between visual artist Jacolby Satterwhite and musician Nick Weiss—one-half of Teengirl Fantasy—PAT takes its name from Satterwhite’s mother Patricia, who suffered from schizophrenia and died in 2016. She left behind hundreds of a capella recordings on cassette tapes as well as abstract drawings of home goods, such as wet wipes, sugar cubes, and toothbrushes. Incorporating her recordings into their work, Satterwhite and Weiss remixed and manipulated Patricia’s voice into propulsive, electronic dance tracks featuring a range of other collaborators.
Love Will Find A Way Home contains a deluxe hardcover gatefold LP + book which features 2 vinyl LPs; heavy-duty board gatefold jacket; printed inner LP sleeves; high-res Bandcamp download code; and a 34-page color artist book.
Jacolby Satterwhite was born in 1986 in Columbia, South Carolina. Satterwhite’s work has been presented in numerous exhibitions both in the United States and in Europe, including most recently at Pioneer Works, Fabric Workshop & Museum, Whitechapel Gallery, the Museum of Modern Art, the Minneapolis Institute of Art, the Museum of Contemporary Art, and many more. He was awarded the United States Artist Francie Bishop Good & David Horvitz Fellowship in 2016. His work is included in the collections of the Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma, Museum of Modern Art, Studio Museum in Harlem, and the Whitney Museum of American Art, among others. In 2019, Satterwhite collaborated with Solange Knowles on her visual album, When I Get Home.
Nick Weiss began his music career as one-half of Teengirl Fantasy, an ever-evolving electronic music duo established in 2009. Weiss and bandmate Logan Takahashi’s music as Teengirl Fantasy has been described by critics as “dream-beat,” an atmospheric yet driving sound that pulls elements from deep house to shoegaze. Weiss participated in the 2014 Red Bull Music Academy in Tokyo under his new solo production guise Nightfeelings, and has since co-produced albums for artists ranging from SSION’s noise pop to Lafawndah’s ritual club music. For the past three years, Weiss has collaborated with Jacolby Satterwhite on re-imagining his mother Patricia’s a capella songs as electronic odysseys.
