Noetic Corpus – dedicated to people with brains and balls in Croatia

London based photographer Predrag Pajdic is so amazing and we love his work so much that we had to repeat his Noetic Corpus series on kontraPLAN, extended by some new photos he added to this series in the meantime.

 

With this beautiful post, kontraPLAN wanted to contribute and pay respect to LGBT community and all open minded people in Croatia. December 1st 2013, they will have to face a referendum imposed to them by the group of narrow minded people who wants to deny the right of two man or two woman to get married and to call their relationship a marriage. What’s even worse, they want to enter those ridiculous statements in the Croatian constitution.
We truly hope that majority of Croatians will vote AGAINST the discrimination and AGAINST those primitive ideas which certainly do not have place in today’s world. We hope Croatia understands what are human rights and that it will protect its citizens so that the international institutions will not have to intervene in this matter.
Enjoy the photos and good luck with the voting Croatia! OnDecember 1st vote AGAINST! Vote PROTIV!

“I don’t want realism. I want magic! Yes, yes, magic. I try to give that to people.
I do misrepresent things. I don’t tell truths. I tell what ought to be truth.”
[Blanche DuBois from A Streetcar Named Desire by Tennessee Williams]

When the content, subject and presentation is a story, played not by models but participants in the unfolding of all ages and both genders, it could leave one wondering of the inspiration that lies within each story, each performance. Indeed, how does one unmask the artist’s intention when the story presents beyond post modern? Captive in light, more comfortable in night, but revealed from within the ‘elan vital’, the essence of the soul of each is there to see in the dimensions of interaction of each creature of the night. These stories steal glimpse after glimpse into the sympathetic magic of moments spent, souls bared and the scintilla of heart light that pervades each second, evades normal descriptions and yet has been ensnared through the eye of a camera.

Noetic Corpus: Sojourn of the Soul by Predrag Pajdic is an ongoing project of mini performances recorded in photography and video.
