    GAM Gallery is a self-funded art gallery and an artist studio in Vancouver. It was started almost spontaneously by four young women who knew a lot about art and little about business planning. Five years on, GAM has put its name on the city's art map, it boasts a new exhibition every month and is constantly working on expanding support for the local creative community that has formed around.

      • Matthias by Thomas Hörl

        digitalized 8- and 16mm films, greenscreen, b/w, color, PAL, no sound, ca. 3 min., with kind permission of the Archiv des Österreichischen Volksliedwerk for the use of Herbert Lager’s film footage. Thomas Hörl 2014 Thomas Hörl coins the term “Tresterersie” in his examination of the Pinzgau Perchtentanz, a form of traditional dance. In a make-believe dance with long-dead Matthias Eder, Hörl brings the contemporary together with the past, culminating in an impulsive burst of colors and an almost homoerotic adoration. Autoerotic Tresterer On Thomas Hörl’s exhibit Matthias by Vitus Weh Museums are places of muses. Muses, in turn, are the spirits of artistic inspiration. Accordingly, museums were originally founded and used less as places of scientific work or learning, and more as a reservoir for artistic enthusiasm, i.e. as a source of inspiration for further artwork. For art production, Ancient Greece long served as the primary hotbed of the appealing other from which new Renaissances continuously developed. With the beginning of modernism, different artists began seeking their inspiration not only in sculpture and picture galleries, but also by combing through other museums. In particular, ethnographic museums and folk collections were fascinating treasure troves for artists like Vincent van Gogh, Paul Gauguin, Pablo Picasso, and Ernst Ludwig Kirchner. Subsequently, the specific characteristics of pre-Colombian sculptures, African masks, and Japanese wood carvings seeped into European art. The fact that such cultural appropriations bear aspects of colonialism has been discussed at length in recent years, but the longing for the exotic other was nevertheless maintained. So, today one turns more towards the personal exotic, or rather one's own modernist symptoms and forms. In his exhibit Matthias in the Salzburger Kunstverein, Thomas Hörl transferred this strategy into a caper, so to speak. He researched local customs, performed them in personal reenactments, and at the same time, catapulted them into the pop cultural present. The result is a colorful bouquet of “indigenous exoticism.” His starting point for this was historical photos, films, and audio recordings documenting a leader of the Perchten dancers in the Pinzgau region between 1898 and 1939, a man named Matthias Eder. An entire ensemble of unique treasure chambers was necessary for this project. Hörl found this material in the Austrian Academy of Science's Phonogrammarchiv, in the Austrian Museum of Folk Life and Folk Art's Photothek, and in the archive of the Österreichisches Volksliedwerk. It shows the historical world of the Raunacht dances, their costumes and moves, as well as how they were staged for the emperor or for science. Thomas Hörl’s focus on the material primarily refers to the aspect of auto-eroticism, which can hardly be overlooked when viewing the Tresterer dancer with his capricious brocaded costume and his excessive head decoration. Hörl translated the material into the present, on one hand through film processing and the other through the exhibition setting, which uses various set pieces of dance club culture such as an ornate curtain of harlequin fabric, a catwalk-type wooden stage, and a DJ booth. Thomas Hörl slipped into a Hanswurst costume for the video shown in the exhibit and copied himself into the historical film. There he performs a playful dance dialogue with the historical Matthias Eder. The audience, in turn, is invited to play music at the DJ booth and dance on the catwalk. Two DJ remixes of the old audio recordings created by the musicians Cherry Sunkist and das_em are available at the DJ booth. http://slywonski.com/
