Sejma Prodanovic and Lena Violetta Leitner set an exhibition that deals with consumerism, marketing, videos, body image and shopping channels. “DAILY DIET” analyzes the complexity of our contemporary society in various ways by digesting the aggressive world of information and advertisement. The different levels of fiction and reality start to mix, involving the visitors as well. Sejma Prodanovic makes a serial of simple linear drawings in ink with the goal to translate different visual languages from the world of mass-media in an individual and direct way. Lena Violetta Leitner shows a two-channel video that deals with the absurd world of shopping and consists of found footage and a documentation of the artistic process of Sejma and Violetta.
