Katerina Seda: From Morning Till Night

3 SEPTEMBER, 6AM - 8PM, TATE MODERN, BANKSIDE, LONDON SE1 9TG. For this new large-scale project staged in the surroundings of Tate Modern, the artist Katerina Seda has invited 80 people from the small village of Bedrichovice in the Czech Republic to London. By asking the villagers to re-enact their everyday actions in this alien environment, Seda aims to explore the conventions and behaviour that unify and divide these two disparate places.

Katerina Seda was born in 1977 in Brno, Czech Republic. She studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague and the School of Applied Arts in Brno. Seda has exhibited widely in several group exhibitions, including this year’s Venice Biennale, at WIELS Contemporary Art Centre, Brussels and Castello di Rivoli Museo d’Arte Contemporanea, Turin (2011) and recently had solo-shows at Cubitt Gallery, London, Kunstlerhaus Bremen and Museums Sheffield.

Meeting point TBC nearer the date.
