Eyes that roll, nudge, pause, flicker and blink. This process is persistently prolonged, repeated and, as such,cannot be consciously controlled.Linda Semadeni’s work demands that viewers look more intently in order to develop an awareness of processes and structures that naturally accompany our actions and thinking because they are learned, incorporated or inscribed.Mental and physical persistence serves here as a course of action. Combined with a fascination that picks up on stringencies, certainties, restrictions and dogmas, exposing and questioning them, Linda Semadeni turns the tables and takes it upon herself to over-and re-write these. Program or be programmed.She transfers these processes to the uncanny before they become controllable and autonomous. She nudges, derails,changes lanes. Spaces open up and zones of disorder and rearrangement emerge; these move on a narrow line and in an interplay between disinhibition and control. They culminate in works that display lively excerpts from a rush of created possibilities and trigger consternation
