A derelict naval hospital that treated soldiers from the Civil War through World War II is the site of an art installation that deals with the wounds of war and the human power of healing.WitteVeen, who was born in Germany and lives in New York City, said the cracked walls, shattered windowpanes and worn state of the building serve as a metaphor for her work.Indeed, it is easy to envision the soldiers who once occupied the former treatment rooms that line a long white plaster-wall corridor of the first floor.WitteVeen has deliberately placed these images in a room near a broken inner staircase propped up with poles and sealed off by glass – as a metaphor for the amputees pictured next door.
