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. 

Sejma Prodanovic *1981, Belgrade
works with discarded material and reinterprets their use with painting, printmaking, drawing and installation. Recent exhibitions are: „Using images“, Cultural Center Grocka (2015), „Daily Drawings“, Gallery DKSG Belgrade (2013), „I saw unseen“, Gallery Dom Omladine Belgrade (2012). 
Lena Violetta Leitner *1986, Graz
works with different media as video, performance, installation or collages and likes to use broken machines or found footage. She focusses on collaborative processes, that especially try to reinforce women to network, like collective OutSight. Some recent exhibitions are: „Contemporaries of the near future“ at das weisse haus, Vienna (Vienna Art Fair 2014), „Obsession“, exhibition OutSight at National Gallery Mala Stanica (2014), „Pigeons, Manifests and More“, Kulturraum Baden (2014), Biennale Sessions
