Still from the video performance MAXIMUS (2015)
practice makes progress 2015.02.21 - 2015.04.19
The exhibition practice makes progress
at Göteborgs Konsthall is the most comprehensive solo exhibition of Dana Sederowsky to date. With new and recent works, Sederowsky explores various dimensions of the human condition, often with a tinge of the absurd. Honing in on human psychology, the meaning of language, and the apparent meaninglessness of life, she employs repetition and repeated motifs as her expression and method. A central idea in her work is that development is preconditioned on attempts and inevitable failures. Operating in a self-conceived, strict set of rules, she is active in front of and behind the camera.
Dana Sederowsky will be present at Göteborgs Konsthall during the exhibition, creating a new piece, monotony is a virtue, repetition is a strength, practice makes progress.
Sederowsky writes slowly and laboriously with a felt pen directly on a wall, ten meter long and six meters high.
She will be present in the exhibition Wednesdays - Fridays from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. between 21 February to 20 March 2015.
