In the “Commentary” on Act I, the artist writes about where the plot of “Let the Artists Die” takes place: “You won’t find it on this stage. (…) It is much more a journey into the past, into the depths of memory, the past that is gone but keeps attracting us, a time that is somehow connected with the regions of DREAM, INFERNUM, THE WORLD OF THE DEAD, ETERNITY… They form a unity! This is why you can find today there as well (…)”. The place is by no means a real or tangible one. The artist adds: “My Poor Little Room of Imagination without walls, a ceiling or a floor!”. The idea was initiated in the performance of “Wielopole, Wielopole”, when the artist reconstructed his Childhood Room on stage. The Poor Little Room of Imagination will keep returning as the artist’s mental space in his theoretical texts and be reflected in the performance of “Today is my Birthday” as well as in his last paintings.
