The first UK exhibition of the work of Katerina Seda, the youngest winner of the nation’s most prestigious Jindrich Chalupecky Prize , is a part of Arrivals > a series of exhibitions introducing the work of artists from the expanded European Union.
Katerina Seda’s two original conceptual projects focus on work with people - her own apathetic grandmother or inhabitants of the whole village where ‘nothing is happening’. Both exhibited works (There is Nothing There, 2003 and It Doesn’t Matter,2005)- make a real difference to their lives – bringing her grandmother out from her long inactivity or making something out of nothing by organising the same daily routine for all inhabitants.
