Hot, dusty summer in Belgrade, mid 80’tees. Asphalt burns around the suburbia warehouse. A dirty young man unloads the trucks. Then he takes a piece of metal from the ground and begins to play on the armature and the fence, searching for the tones that just passed through his head. A bit later he walks back home, repeating the melody he just pitched with the pieces of junk. He enters the house, takes his guitar and plays it out, than he records the melody on a tape recorder.
35 years later this composition will end up in a movie.

For the technique of dry pastel, one of the most subtle artistic practices, artists only reach out when they want to express their most sane feelings and the finest passages on a light-dark relation or to register those chromatic values in the ambience to achieve the impression of simultaneous light absorption and emission. In a furious ecstasy, the author, Dejan Kijevčanin, manages to create those specific situations when objects and ambiences, precisely in this technique, radiate a special life.Slavko Timotijević, Art historian
