Zitrone- Solo show @ Gam Gallery

Zitrone Solo exhibition April 2014

Zitrone-letra

In August 2013, I went to Zurich, Switzerland for an artist residency.  While I was there, I was inspired by the building where I did my residency.  There was something about the people and the building that brought me back to Zurich to document the artistic space for a solo exhibition in Vancouver. I returned for 2 1/2 months from December to early March to work with a local photographer, Saskia Widmer, to document the space and the people integral to the operation and creative voice of the building.

Gam Gallery accommodated having the exhibition in April because the Zitrone building was under threat to be demolished any month and we were able to do a live-stream between Vancouver at Gam Gallery (brunch time) and Zitrone in Zurich (Bar time). A discussion around loss of social and artistic spaces took place.  The best part of it all was being able to show my friends in Zurich the exhibition through the technology. It was a leap of faith for us all.

Thanks to Julia Kreutz, Tarah Hogue from Gam Gallery.  Patt Leger who was a livestream master and of course the folks on this list : Anastasia Katsidis, Corinna Morell, Yves Sablonier, Viola von Scarpatetti, and MaeMae Sykora; who allowed me to ask, interview, question, record, and have faith in what I was going to do with the information after.  AND a major  shout out to the talented Saskia Widmer who was a photographic delight to work with and to have with me to take all of the wonderful photographs documenting the space.

Thanks to the live-stream performers : Jess Hill, Timothy Shay, Julie Parrell, and Viola von Scarpatetti.

CABARET ZURICH

images-3

Cabaret Zurich- an evening of artist entertainment and discourse

We present the Cabaret Zurich, an alternate space for discourse. This playful evening/ cabaret show will happen Saturday, May 7th 2011 and will be centered around the topic of Censorship.

This is a performance “based” series along with a visual gallery component. The cabaret and space itself becomes it’s own entity and will create it’s own magic with interactive events and good old fashioned madness and expression.

Throughout the night there will be audience interactive happenings in the style of Dada :

Wall collage that anyone in the audience can hang external artwork

Creation of cut-up word poems

Audience shoebox feedback on the subject of censorship

Other fun events ( potential for on the spot madness and open mic)

The evening will be  held at Gam Gallery Saturday May 7, 2011.  Doors open 7pm.  Show starts 8pm.  Cash bar provided but madness and entertainment free with admission!

The Gam is a gallery, boutique and artist studio located in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside and fronts an artist-only building at 110 E Hastings St. The Gam exists because it sees a need to create an inclusive meeting place for artists and community members.  It is a place to locate oneself as an important participant and an active agent in fostering a dynamic and thoughtful culture.

Inspired by Cabaret Voltaire…. About :

” In Zurich in 1915, losing interest in the slaughterhouses of the world war; we turned to Fine Arts.  While the thunder of the batteries rumbled in the distance, we pasted, we recited, we versified, we sang with all our soul.  We searched for an elementary art that would, we thought, save mankind from the madness of these times.”   -Hans Arp

We had lost confidence in our culture. Everything had to be demolished.  At the Cabaret Voltaire we began by shocking common sense, public opinion, education, institutions, museums, good taste, in short, the whole prevailing order.  -Marcel Janco

The Dada movement embodied a need to create a dialogue in reaction to war during the “madness of these times”.  The act of making Art or Anti-Art was created from a simple human need for expression. Dadaist Raoul Hausmann stated ” We wanted to change the world but without any particular idea”.  The Cabaret Voltaire was initiated by Dada Artist Hugo Ball. It became a “centre for artist entertainment, where young artists and poets were invited to bring along their ideas, contributions, read their poems aloud, hang their pictures, sing and dance, play music”.
