Katinka Bock

'Radio Piombino'

21 Woodlands Terrace, Glasgow, G3 6DF

20 April – 8 July 2018

For Glasgow International 2018, The Common Guild will present a solo exhibition of work by the Paris-based, German artist Katinka Bock, her first in the UK. Bock works with a range of natural and manmade materials that undergo processes of alteration and translation, transforming materials into objects and experiments into proposals. Bock often takes the peculiarities or context of a given space as a starting point for her work, and her project for Glasgow taps into the history of 21 Woodlands Terrace as a domestic building and the history of Glasgow as a major port, a place of exchange and transaction. Working with both lead and ceramics, her exhibition 'Radio Piombino’ re-imagines the space as a landscape of sculptural elements that transform the building into a "poisoned body”.

The exhibition with Katinka Bock follows our previous Glasgow International exhibitions with leading international artists including Gabriel Kuri (2014) and Akram Zaatari (2016) and will be accompanied by a series of related talks and events.
