Katerina Seda

The Renaissance Society, Chicago

comunicato stampa

The Renaissance Society presents an exhibition by Katerina Seda, January 6 to February 10, 2008 Czech artist Katerina Seda’s primary media are her friends, family, and community of her native town Lisen. Seda uses performance, staged activities, and public interventions to reactivate social concourse as it is the basis for a sense of self predicated on group identification. In 2005, Katerina Seda received the Essel Award for distinguished contemporary art production in Central and Eastern Europe. She has exhibited at the Arratia, Beer gallery in Berlin, Modern Art Oxford and Documenta 12.

The Society will present It Doesn’t Matter, a series of over 600 drawings executed by Šedá’s 77-year-old grandmother, cataloging in size and type the various tools and supplies sold through the Brno hardware shop her grandmother managed for over thirty years under communism. While therapeutic in intent, the result is a profound reflection on memory and subjectivity as expressed through, rather than in spite of, alienation.
