[image 1] "lead us not into temptation", Ustka
with cardboard letters the sentence: "nie wódź nas na pokuszenie" is written on the wall; on the floor there is a blossom of a rose; I enter the space and with string I start to attach all the cardboard letters to my head; having fixed them all I turn around and i stand right on the rose; I take out 28 pencils from the pocket of my pants; I break each one with the help of my knee; one after another they fall on the floor and my right foot keeps hitting and smashing the rose; After breaking all the pencils the rose turned into a red mark on the floor; i leave the space

[Image 2] "and forgive us our depts", Kraków
with cardboard letters the sentence: „i odpuść nam nasze winy“ is written on the wall; on the floor there is a blossom of a rose, a bucket filled with milk in front of the wall and close to the bucket there is a bunch of red roses placed on the floor; I enter the situation and pick up the roses; i position myself in front of the wall with the cardboard letters, hold on for a moment and put the flowers back; with string I start to attach all the cardboard letters to my head; with the letters on my head I take the roses from the ground and approach the wall; I start to gently pat them to the wall; repeating this action and gradually increasing the force until I bash the roses against the wall with full force; after a while only the stalks remain; I take the bucket and pour the milk against the wall; i leave the place

[Image 3] "give us this day our daily bread", Bielsko-Biała
with cardboard letters the sentence: „chleba naszego powszedniego daj nam dzisiaj“ is written on the wall; on the floor there are two big loaves of bread, a metal bowl and matches; i enter the space and with string I start to attach all the cardboard letters to my head; I leave four letters fixed to the wall: A, M, E, N; I kneel down and start to hollow out the bread loaves; i take off my shoes and put the loaves on instead; I go back to the wall, take the letter A, crumple it and put it into the metal bowl; i repeat the action with the remaining letters M, E and N; using a match I set them aflame; i turn back to the wall and hit my letter-head against the wall; i stop after a while and i leave the place very groggy
