Faces and names, I wish they were the same
Faces and names only cause trouble for me
Faces and names
If we all looked the same and we all had the same name
I wouldn't be jealous of you or you jealous of me
Faces and names
I always fall in love with someone who looks
the way I wish that I could be
I'm always staring at someone who hurts
And the one they hurt is me
Faces and names, to me they're all the same
If I looked like you and you looked like me
There'd be less trouble you see
Faces and names I wish they'd go away
I'd disappear into that wall and never talk
Faces and names
I wish I was a robot or a machine
Without a feeling or a thought
People who want to meet the name I have
Are always disappointed when they meet me
Faces and names I wish they were the same
Faces and names only cause problems for me
Faces and names
I'd rather be a hole in the wall - looking out on the other side
I'd rather look and listen, listen and not talk
To faces and names
I had a breakdown when I was a kid
I lost my hair when I was young
If you dress older when you are not, as you really age you look the same
If we all looked the same, we wouldn't play these games
Me dressing for you and you dressing for me - undressing for me
Faces and names if they all were the same
You wouldn't be jealous of me or me jealous of you
Me jealous of you - I'm jealous of you
Your face and your name
Your face and your name
Faces and names
 
John Cale / Lou Reed, 1990
 
 

 

Faces and Names is a group show juxtaposing portrait works of different media, including drawings, collages, photographs, paintings and one sculpture.
On display are portraits of friends and family members (Tamina Amadyar, Aïda Ruilova, Lucy McKenzie), portraits of celebrities from showbiz and politics (Erik van Lieshout, Roman März, Yves Scherer), self-portraits of artists (Jürgen Klauke, Bjarne Melgaard), portraits of fictional figures, surreal as well as digital imaginations (Thomas Helbig, Andy Hope 1930, Markus Selg), plus - last but not least – some rather conceptual variations of this traditional and still popular genre of the visual arts (Erwin Kneihsl, Jasmin Werner, Thomas Zipp), which has become even more topical again in times when we meet each other more often in the form of moving profile pictures on computer screens than we actually face each other in person.
