This well designed artist’s book in a box is Prague-based Katerina Seda's first. Ten folders contain eight years worth of documentation from her conceptually based work in the form of diagrams, graphs, drawings, texts, photographs and questionnaires. Seda, who was born in 1977 in the Moravian village of Ponetovice, stages interventions near her home town and in Prague, her current base. Through research into behavior and communication patterns in art and non-art communities, Seda--whose work was included in 2007’s Documenta XII--creates projects based on the contexts and social relationships between the individuals around her. “Nic tam není” (“There’s Nothing There”) (2003), involved the participation of all the inhabitants of Ponetovice: One Saturday, she was able to convince residents to synchronize all their activities according to a schedule she had devised for the day. In another project, she had her grandmother create several hundred drawings from memory, documenting the objects she had sold at the household goods shop where she’d worked her whole life.
