Thirty-three short videoart features that can be viewed separately or in their entirety. A young poet, whose violent father's shadow looms over him, recalls traumatic episodes from his life while locked away in an asylum.
The installation had its world premiere at The Museum of Modern Art in New York on May 3, 2006, curated by Laurence Kardish. Its Polish debut was at the Atlas Sztuki Gallery in Łódź from 2006-05-19 to 2006-06-18 (Polish-language name "Krew Poety"). The installation was exhibited at the Wrocław Opera House from 2006-07-20 to 2006-07-30 during the Era New Horizons Festival. It was described there as: video art screened on eight walls, the remaining works shown in loops on 24 screens. Entering this labyrinth, every viewer walks from one stage to another and builds his or her private story out of ready elements.
Blood of a Poet was further exhibited as a video installation from 2007-02-08 to 2007-02-18 in Berlin, during Berlinale. There it was described as: "a circuit of 33 short films and a series of interrelated photographic works."
In June 6th, 2007, Blood of a Poet installation became a part of the 52nd Venice Biennale. For almost six month, until November 21st, it was shown in two locations: as the non-stop outside projection on Campo San Pantalon, and on 33 screens inside the Teatro Junghans on Giudecca.
