Lecture performance by Matthias Gabi

About

Matthias Gabi gathers images. His archive contains over 14 000 press illustrations organized by thematic folders. A collection of non-fiction picture books and large amounts of postcards also sit across shelves at the artist's studio. Together with news clippings, magazines, sales catalogues, calendar imagery and accumulated .jpeg files, this pictorial reserve is the raw material of Gabi's art practice. His lecture performances consist in speeches accompanied by the real-time projection of a video documenting the artist's gestures, as he browses through a selection of items from his visual supplies. Gabi addresses his idiosyncratic aesthetic concerns as well as wider issues around the circulation of images in today's hypertextual environment. Focusing on vernacular photographs, Flowers for your Wedding Day is an occasion to encounter a singular way of thinking about images, and to consider new questions about that ubiquitous medium, photography. Curated by Lucile Dupraz. With the support of ECAL/Ecole cantonale d'art de Lausanne.
