„In the labyrinth of Paris metro , on the platforms, travelling from one city end to another, Piotr is collecting stray words. He puts together puzzles, however, is one letter going to find the second one? Suddenly, in the dark corridors appears a poem which enlightens the meaning of forgotten wall: it’s marvelous painting by Piotr and discovered route… Thank you Piotr”. /Irène Jacob/
