Katinka Bock’s work is rooted in a discursive thought of sculpture and language. The shape is often a result of a working process where the rational and the unforeseen meet each other. Her installations often seem to wrestle against the claustrophobia of the exhibition spaces; tending to open doors, windows, walls, holes by which to escape, or to let in rain or air.
