Artwork location: Germany

Young japanese businessmen, well-dressed, sometimes with dirty pants, sometimes having a heel peaking out of a shoe, men in almost gracile postures, sleeping, streched out, resting, sunk in, only hold by their unconscious drunkenness and a single detail of architecture, safe like an angel, beautiful like sleeping children, outside of the historical time, de-invidualized, for a short period of time released from the military bondage against their superiors, the merciless machinery & icy hierarchy of the japanese business.

Pawel Jaszczuk achieves the feat to take photos of deadly drunk men without allowing the viewer the slightest doubt in their dignity, without betraying them, because they are not there. And a metaphysical dignity which they do not have awake - and not even have the slightest idea of - is on their incredibly dissolved and at the same time petrified bodies, which came strangely to theirselves and seem to float weightless in a timespace to which no sober man has ever had an access to.

You do not want to see them waking up, because then everyone of them will become one in a million again and will disappear in the insignificance of the masses without a trace: The western Eye immediately suspects that those photographs are posed by ballet dancers or ingenious actors, just so perfect do look posture, ballance and statics on them. Japanese people may laugh at the incomprehensible loneliness of these men, but it is not a laugh without envy and admiration at the same time because everyone knows that in Japan 30.000 suicides every year are not comitted by sleeping people.
