Monika Szydlowska: Performance by Wojciech Tubaja

2011
Video

The artist Monika Szydlowska is recorded in this video in a performance commissioned by Wojciech. The performance is based on a scene from the television series “Twin Peaks” of Nadine’s suicide attempt. Wojciech, who sensed Monika’s great personal fear of death, deliberately forced her to confront her fear by reenacting the scene multiple times. The act of commissioning this performance served as a direct attack on the rules she imposed on herself, resulting in a depiction of a deep internal struggle.
