Luzar, R (2016) Facing/Faceless. In: About Face Symposium, 21 January 2016, Hauser & Wirth Somerset, Bruton, UK.
Facing is said to be an action. If the action is true, in some ways opened amorously, facing becomes ‘less than nothing’. Facing is then absolutely exposing: facing others as much as oneself, facing without any underlying face to really grasp, possess, or come back to. My presentation delves into such complexities, exploring implications the ‘faceless’ and ‘facing’ have for portraiture now. To do this, the exploration meanders through works and concepts by – amongst others – filmmaker Hiroshi Teshigahara, artist Janine Antoni, and writer Emmanuel Levinas.
