‘I don’t like sunsets’ is an exploration of a sense of attachment – a feeling which can be empowering, but also difficult at times. Starting point for the project was Zuzanna Głód’s grandparents’ house located on the outskirts of Warsaw, which has been empty for years and will be demolished soon. This space, once highly saturated with meanings, is slowly losing them and as the artist expressed, she found it difficult to let it go.
Zuzanna started by documenting the space, but gradually began to introduce herself and other family members into the photographs. By arranging situations in and around the house and combining new images with archival ones, she found a way of saying goodbye to this space and building her own, not necessarily logical, narrative around it.
