Bedrichovice upon Thames
This atypical exhibition by Czech artist Katerina Seda, in the Moravian Gallery in Brno, is part of her five-year-long project through which she endeavours to create a new form of a holiday in the village of Bedrichovice. The project started on 3 September 2011 in Tate Modern in London under the title From Morning Till Night / Od nevidím do nevidím.
'Bedrichovice is a typical village where you do not meet a single soul during the working day — most of its inhabitants leave for work in the nearby town and do not return until the evening. This does not leave them much time for meeting one another. During the weekend they try to make up for what they do not have time over the week: they work in the garden or pursue their hobbies. The aim of the five-year-long project FROM MORNING TILL NIGHT (OD NEVIDÍM DO NEVIDÍM) is to make all the village inhabitants stay at home every year on the same day (September 3) and attempt to create together a new form of holiday. During this holiday they would have the opportunity to see themselves and their area in a different light. The all-year-round preparations for each of the five parts of the project should motivate the inhabitants of Bedrichovice to go beyond their own limits and thus instigate a permanent change in their behaviour.' Kateřina Šedá
Over its duration from 3. 9. 2013 till 3. 9. 2014, the exhibition Bedrichovice upon Thames in the Moravian Gallery in Brno will follow in detail – live and direct – one of the parts of the project (transformation of the village square in Bedrichovice). The gallery, attaining a new function, becomes a road sign directing the spectators to the centre of the creative action.
