HALF WAY HOME Image Consulting
A self-curated residency-in-residence during Zwierzyñska’s yearlong stay at the Künstlerhaus Bethanien in Berlin. For a period of up to 2 weeks international artists were invited to stay, perform, produce and co-produce work in her studio. The bureau, based in structure on the common to Germany image consultancy bureaus aiming at helping Eastern Germans adjust to their new Western identity, in this case aimed at portraying the ‘perfect’ artist of today and pinpointing his/her place in modern culture. As an artist with Eastern and Western background Zwierzyñska did a triple self-portrait showing this culture clash (AGATA East/West). As host of the agency she regularly visited an original image consultancy bureau, where she was advised on how an artist of the 21st century should present him/herself (go see). While questioning the artist’s identity, both personal and national, and reflecting his/her image and works, the project generated a series of real-time happenings – both live and on the Internet on this regurlarly updated website.

The 11th of July 2002 launch party which included a live graffiti session by Berlin’s T2B Crew, live beatbox and a DJ session (go see) was followed by Roosje Klap’s Club Plak poster project on tour from Amsterdam (go see), by Sport.01 – a Swedish artist- and musician duo: Allen Grubesic and Karl Tuikkannen (go see), and by street-artist and DJ Raimond Chaves from Columbia (go see). By choosing creatively conscious people to collaborate with Zwierzyñska provoked an active artistic and critical exchange.
