The artist Katerina Šedá has invited eighty residents of all ages from Bedřichovice, a small village in Czech Republic, to perform a one-day action in London.

The eighty volunteers from Bedřichovice become participants of a game, created and orchestrated by Šedá, for one day: from sunrise to sunset. The area chosen by the artist extends from Tate Modern to St Paul’s Cathedral with the church of St Benet at the centre, to replicate the area of the village.

An additional eighty UK-based professional and amateur artists have been invited to assist Šedá in representing the imaginary borders of the village. Each of them positioned at the outskirts of the ‘new’ locality, draws and paints a specific angle of Bedřichovice while facing the urban landscape of London.
