At first, Katinka Bock’s work seems to be rooted in a movement initiated by arte povera. The German artist has a fondness for modest, natural materials - terracotta, wood, plaster, ceramic, leather, fabric, clay, or more recently, bronze - which she often, delicately and simply, combines with found, existing objects: a stone, ladder, rope, table, steel ring or football.

Her sculptures and installations explore temporality and space, mining the territories of history and geography, to deal with questions of language, common space and sharing. Proportion is a vital element of the work, found in suspension or the equilibrium of a mobile. The materials Katinka Bock uses convey a meaning beyond their physical form. She arranges them in a way which incites immediate, profound reactions before any consideration is given to the object itself.
