The Last Interview

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.
The final 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
From 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).
