Katinka Bock

Born in 1976 at Francfort-sur-le-Main, Allemagne

Katinka Bock’s sculptures are the result of simple gestures, often directly legible in the form or surface of the work. Shaped by natural physical processes, they are closely linked to the body and often make use of its scale. Bock’s work is based on extremely concrete things (the material, the creative gesture, the weight, the space) while always opening up to new horizons, to something more impalpable and immaterial.

Born in 1976 in Frankfurt (Germany), Katinka Bock is a graduate of the Kunsthochschule Berlin-Weissensee and did her postgraduate studies at the École nationale supérieure des beaux-arts in Lyon. Winner of the 14th Pernod Ricard Foundation Prize and the Dorothea von Stetten Art Award in 2012, she was nominated for the Marcel Duchamp Prize in 2019.
