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.
Focusing 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.
