Estradna umjetnost

Dragi moj Pego
Evo ti ponovo dovedoh ovog brku. Opet se nešto mota oko one tvoje likovnjakinje, ali dobro je, sve je pod kontrolom.
Dal se viđaš s onim velikanima? Ma znam, prije si samo šaputao, a sad se bolan družiš sa gigantima. Jest da je vjećnost dosadna stvar, ali moraš izdurat.
Pozdravlja te tvoj Zlaja.

Dan sjećanja

I Ti si, dragi Pego, bio dio Dovlaneta.

Ćakula

Pego moj,

prođe godina, i jesi li se navik’o gore? Mi ovdje nikako da se naviknemo da si gore. Ma stvarno ti to nije trebalo, Al’ šta je tu je. Evo mene opet da ti malo smetam, da malo proćakulam s tobom. Sigurno te zanimaju novitade s ovoga svijeta. E pa jedna je da je Vlado zamrznuo svoj blog do daljnjega. Sigurno misli na jedno 2oo do 300 godina pa kad ga onda neko odledi biće Dovlanet k’o nov. Do tada ja održavam jednu kafanu da ima gdje svratiti ova raja što je još ostala, sevap je. Nego, Pego dragi ti si se na ovom mjestu baš naradio t.j. napisao pa raja još navraća i to u pristojnom broju. Jest manje nego prije, valjda su te pročitali, mislim, sve što si napisao. Joj kako bi lijepo bilo da se pojavi neka tvoja nova priča pa da zasvijetli onako k’o ona Gospa u Međugorju.

Skoro naletih na tipa što se vrzma oko onih tvojih ljubavnica. Čas ga vidim s jednom, čas s drugom. Prije par dana sam ga i uslik’o kako se mota oko likovne akademije, eno baš tamo ispred tvoje Radićeve. Nebojse pripaziću ja na njega.

Opet se ja rasprič’o, a moram natrag u onu kafanu, možda je neko svratio da pita šta mai ili da ostavi kakvu poruku, ili da, nedaj Bože, ostavi napojnicu, hoću reč’ kompliment. Ali nisam ti ja te sreće.

Vozdra prijatelju, svratiću ja opet ako nemaš ništa protiv. Ako imaš, javi mi to po nekome od tvojih.

Rado Te se sjeća Tvoj Zlaja sa Havaja.

A sad će Ti se obratiti i ovaj brko:

Whispering with Giants vernissage

Thank you all for coming here tonight, to Whispering with Giants exhibition by Predrag Debevec, my father.

Today is exactly a year since he passed away and this exhibition has been organised in order to commemorate his life. What better way is there to remember someone than to display his work and share an intimate part of his life with the world?

It was very emotional putting something like this together not only because the walls in our flat are completely bare without the paintings that have ‘taken care of us’ for the past year but also because Dad never had a proper exhibition which is why this is so important for us. We didn’t know where to start. Little did we know, he pretty much left us a manual for this exhibition in his blog which he wrote since 2006. Bit by bit, we started to unveil the stories of his paintings and decided to use his text in the exhibition as well, so that when you walk around the gallery, he can speak to you personally – the way he always did. The manual was so complete that he even came up with the title; As soon as I came back to Warsaw, I started something completely new, an adventure that I would later call Whispering with Giants, the future title of my first exhibition in Warsaw. Not only is this an exhibition of his paintings but also of his words, because we had to celebrate all of him including his two mistresses that followed him throughout his life: Art and literature are to me like two vicious but seductive mistresses, who mercilessly drag me away from the other, defying each other whenever they please. I have no strength to resist them or to give my love to only one of them. Therefore today I live in total bigamy.

Around you are a collection of thoughts, feelings and ideas of a man who is no longer with us today but who’s life carries stories that his words and paintings are still able to tell. To me my father was always one of those giants not only because his palms were always bigger than mine and were an endless source of heat, but also because I could listen to his stories for hours and he always had something interesting to say. So as was the case with his fellow giants, this life was just too short for him to say all the wonderful and inspiring things that were on his mind. He created paintings and wrote stories that are able to do that for him instead.

To me my father was always one of those giants and this exhibition is our whisper out to him.

As I look around the room, I see those of you who have met my father and those who didn’t get the chance to.  This is your opportunity to truly get to know him and have a conversation with him. I am very proud to introduce to you Predrag Debevec.

Thank you

Njegove ljubavnice

Slikarstvo i književnost su me, kao dvije zavodljive ali opake ljubavnice, nemilosrdno odvlačile, svaka na svoju stranu, prkoseći jedna drugoj, kad god im se to prohtjelo, a ja nisam imao snage da im se oduprem i da svoju ljubav poklonim samo jednoj od njih dvije. I danas, zato, živim u totalnoj bigamiji.

Upravo tako, Pego i DANAS ŽIVI u totalnoj bigamiji i nikad nije bio življi. Živi On na ovom blogu i u našim srcima. Na dan njegovog vjenčanja s vječnišću upoznaćete jednu njegovih zavodljivu ljubavnicu, dok druga svakoga dana u tišini ovog hrama iznosi najintimnije priče njihovog života.

Za ovogodišnji spomen odabrah ovaj spotić kojim onomad razveselih dragog prijatelja, a danas se uklapa u najavljenu izložbu.

Sačekao sam jutro da u miru sa kafom i prelijepim pogledom na Dvorski kompleks Wilanow, rezidenciju kralja Sobjeckog i njegove žene kraljice Mrisienke, koji su ovde, moje prve komšije ali kojih već odavno nema jer su se preselili u nebo, da saslušam i pogledam ovaj prekrasni spot koji si mi poslao.

…..samo toliko da znaš da si pokrenuo lavinu mnogih tudjih kao i mojih emocija i sjećanja.

 Pego

E moj prijatelju, puno ti zamjeram što si se tako požurio da upoznaš tog kralja i kraljicu. Nikad Ti to neću oprostiti.

Whispering with Giants

Uvijek mi je bilo na pameti da sam pijanista koji ponovo svira Šopena i uživa u muzici, koju ja nisam stvorio i koja nije moja, ali je zato duša moja, koja je spontano prima i u njoj uživa. Zašto to ne bi moglo da bude i u mom magičnom svijetu slikanja? (…) Odmah, kada sam se vratio u Varšavu, krenuo sam u nešto sasvim novo. U avanturu koju sam kasnije nazvao „Šaputanje sa divovima“, budućim naslovom moje prve izložbe u Varšavi „Whispering with Giants“. (Pego 2008)

Dragi moj Pego

Još jedan tvoj dobri i dragi prijatelj odlučio je da ti pravi društvo, a Split je nažalost izgubio jednog dobrog i poznatog zubara. Neka mu je laka ova splitska zemlja. Počivao u miru.
