The Last Interview, Beachy Head, UK, April-May 2004
A project about suicide and the reason why people choose to end their lives.
It took place on the cliffs of Beachy Head on the south coast of England,
a place notorious for suicides. From mid April 2004 for 4 weeks during
the statistically highest suicide rates Zwierzyñska patrolled the
edge of the 200m tall chalk cliffs. A resulting one-off performance -
live-told story, showing the gathered and made materials, was presented
at the Rijksacademy in Amsterdam.
aims of the project are a stop-motion animation which will be filmed at
the artists' residency Het
Vijfde Seizoen from March 2005.
Het Vijfde Seizoen
March until June 2005 Zwierzyñska
will stay at Het Vijfde Seizoen, an artists' residency on the premises
of the Willem Arntsz Hoeve, a psychiatric clinic
in Den Dolder (NL). Her work there will consist of a workshop with
the patients and art students, guests of the institution, a pinhole
camera photo series of female patients, and developing of "Drowning
In Nightmares" - a stop-motion animation about suicide (a continuation
of project The Last Interview).
