 Ewa Zarzycka, Tower (Wieża), Pomeranian Dukes’ Castle, Darłowo, 1990

A record of Ewa Zarzycka’s performance Tower from 1990, presented at the Pomeranian Dukes’ Castle in Darłowo as part of the National Artistic Encounters at the Castle under the title “An Invitation to Work.”

In her action, she uses a subjective narrative to conduct a special type of reflection on art. The essence of the performance on the castle steps in Darłowo is to recreate her thinking process. In Zarzycka’s understanding, creative work is inseparably bound up with private life, meetings, events, travels, reading. She touches on the essence of art but also the role of the artist, the nature of the creation process. Weaving tales bordering on art and everyday life, she points to the definitional ambiguity in distinguishing between them. Climbing and descending the stairs, the artist strives to play back her own creative process and the accompanying struggles and reflections.
