Footage of Janusz Bałdyga's performance Steps which also included the artist's performative lecture held at the Centre for Contemporary Art Ujazdowski Castle in Warsaw in 1999.

The performance Steps was carried out by Bałdyga a number of times between 1997 and 1999. The artist operated in an area delimited by simple physical props in order to investigate their physical properties and durability. At the same time, he also put the physical potential of his own body to trial by following a path co-organised by the dynamics of the used objects. The artist's dependence on those objects diminished his role as the initiator of the activity.
