Šedá’s work is based around the community where she lives in Brno-Líšeň in the Czech Republic. She uses performance, staged activities and public interventions to reactivate communities and create social interaction. For Líšeň Profile, Šedá has worked with 500 participants from across the Czech Republic. She invited them to her home town to create a portrait of Líšeň and its inhabitants, exploring connections between people, community and place.
