The subtitle of this exhibition ”Me, Myself and I“ suggested a play with the superficial and the perceived, with appearance and reality, and with the manifold facets of any one person. A free rendering of Arthur Rimbaud: ”I is another“ or of Sigmund Freud: ”The id, the ego and the super-ego.“
This exhibition of Andy Warhol‘s work, a concise selection in essayist form, presented works that, in their very diversity and contrariety, highlight the artist‘s chameleon-like qualities. If each work or each statement were to be placed side by side, there would emerge from myriad pictures one picture that reflects the different perceptions and interpretations of his artistic personality. A picture that, behind the colourful image of the silverwigged Pop star, reveals a shy, almost timid person who observed and documented the face and depths of his time with a cool distance. Not without humour or imagination. And not without a certain melancholy.
