ÜBER DIE KUNST DES TIHOMIR PAJTASEV

Für seine Arbeit ist es charakteristisch, daß er Medien miteinander zu verbinden sucht.
Tanz, Video, Photographie und bildende Kunst verknüpft Pajtasev zu einer Einheit, die nicht auf Synästhesie und Addition hinausläuft, sondern, auf ein intellektuelles Konzept gegründet, zur Abkühlung und rationalen Durchdringung der Mythologie von der dionysischen Unmittelbarkeit des tanzenden Körpers führt. Seine Rück-Projektionen von Körperbildern auf den Körper des Tänzers wollen die Unentrinnbarkeit des Leibverhältnisses aus den Konditionen der Reflexivität sowie der Überlagerung durch das Imaginäre buchtäblich vor Augen führen- eine lichttechnische Aufklärung des derzeit mythologisch und kommerziell- körperkultisch vereinnahmten dunklen Kontinents des Leiblichkeit.
Nicht nur zwischen Medien,auch zwischen Kulturen schlägt Pajtasev Brücken. Denn wenn auch seine künstlerische Arbeit in der konzeptuell geprägten westlichen Kultur wurzelt, so belebt er diese doch mit seinem Temparament als “Vollbluttänzer”, als Persönlichkeit mit einer beeindruckenden körpersprachlichen Fähigkeit, als Repräsentant eines Typus von Spontanität und Sinnlichkeit, wie es hierzulande sonst nicht gedeiht.
Wenn heute vielfach in der Öffentlichkeit nach einer Überbrückung der kulturellen Differenzen im europäischen Raum gerufen wird, so kann die Antwort darauf nicht im Vorführen des Fremden als einem Fremden bestehen. Vielmehr bedarf es zwischen den Kulturen der Vermittler, die in beiden zuhause sind, und die deshalb die eine Kultur in die Wahrnehmungskategorien der anderen zu übersetzen befähigt sind. Einer jener wenigen interkulturellen Grenzgänger und Brückenbauer ist in meiner Sicht Tihomir Pajtasev.

THE LETTER OF RECOMMENDATION

Already since years is Mr. Tihomir Pajtasev known to The Museum of Modern Art and has been participating here at Auctions and Performances (for instance The Museum of 20th Century, Photo Exhibition “Snacks”). His Art Achievement can be taken as serious research of ideas between pictorial-graphic and interpretative arts. It is typical for his work to look for connection of different media.
There is no question about the importance of his work to Austria and especially Vienna-his main field of creative work. There is hope, he will be able to realize many projects also in the time coming.

DAS GELBE KREUZ INTERNATIONAL


Organisation für Kinder in Not


Tihomir Pajtasev performed in the years 1990 to 1993 his artistic photo-projections in my castle. During this time I get to know him as a always correct and trustworthy man. I think highly of his enthusiastic interest as an artist and as a man.
As such there developed a teamwork rich with ideas and their realisation in my charitable organisation “The Yellow Cross” International”. Mr Pajtasev has supported the organisation with the gift of this pictures, whose profits granted threaten children.
Because of this I bound up with him and take care of his work.

Yours faithfully,

Mireille Ehrenfels-Abeille, Vice President





ENSEMBLE DE DANSE MODERNE TRUDY KRESSEL

Dear Sirs,
Tihomir Pajtasev has danced from 1980 to 1983 in my „Ensemble de Danse Moderne“, during doing his studies of the same subject.
I was impressed to see his intention, his thirst for knowledge and his joy on that he always wants to get ahead in the profession as a dancer and in “body language”. Because of all those reasons is he an interesting and important artist for me. His way of thinking to make from “body language” his true profession is absolutely entitled – and this is my dearest wish for him.
Now I prepare a new prerformance for autumn 93 and I were very lucky if Tihomir could have a leading part there although he lives in Austria for nearly 20 years.
As such I request you to find means and ways to give us this change and to give him the occasion to continue his research in different countries.

Yours faithfully

TRUDY KRESSEL





THEATRE OF THE CITY HEIDELBERG

Herrn Tihomir Pajtasev


CONFIRMATION

I met Tihomir Pajtasev the first time 20 years ago in Vienna. This time he was a talented young dancer with strong artistic ambition. He has these expectation surely fulfilled and works in the field of presentation and visual art, which is less researched.

I hope that he can realize his project “Tranceopticum” and I have this recommended to this theatre.

Yours faithfully

Liz King
Director ot the Heidelberger Ballet

VL an der Werkstätte

I know Mr. Tihomir PAJTASEV since his student time of the “Meisterklasse Prof. C. Unger” in the “Hochschule für angewandte Kunst”. I striked Mr. Pajtasev already at that time because of his consistent putting through of his ideas, which includes a specified circular of themes, it means that he pushes forward to the limits of the graphic art, “Körperlichkeit”, Performance Art and branches like this which he combined together and developed new and original possibilities of creation. Besides Mr. Pajtasev gave study-courses and training-colleges for artistic-creativ realization of movement-work in two-dimensional artistic-graphic work.

I watched his artistic development continuous and so Icould because of different events and exhibitions (for example Museum of the 20th century, Vienna, photo exhibition “Snacks”, different productions in the studio founded by him) observe that Mr. Pajtasev realized his target with determination and many talent.

His work concentrated itself during the latest years extraordinarily and it founded its remarkable recognition in the cultural publicity.

As such I hold with Mr. Tihomir Pajtasev as a realy interesting artistical creating personality and I hope that I have with that contributed to stabilize his changes in a positive sense in our country.

Yours faithfully

Heinz W. Lindinger

Tihomir Pajtasev has on July 31th, 1993 in the scope of our artistic events in the „Kastell Küb“ presented his works.
These works were matter of “Durotrans-Enlargements” of his photographs in form of light-installations.
His light-pictures showed to the whole interior decoration a clear effect of the rhythmic form and color dynamic, stillness and transparency by the caractaristic element of realization of movement-times to metaphorical language in the rooms of the Kastell.
With many thanks
