Published to accompany thirteen sculptures and installations by Katinka Bock at the Henry Art Gallery in Seattle, six of which were specially commissioned, this book presents the pieces formally, but also explores the context of their creation. Using natural and found materials, such as clay, wood, stones, sheet metal, steel beams and urban detritus, Bock’s work is multi-layered, delving into site, origin and process to uncover spatial, historical and archaeological inquiries. Meditations on the processes that shape materials – oxidation, exposure, stress, heat, erosion – they are an encounter with transformation. With texts by Luis Croquer, Thomas Clerc and Marie-Cécile Burnichon.
