Bock, Katinka

Regular price €30,00

published on the occasion of the exhibition ‘Warum ich mich in eine Nachtigall verwandelt habe’ at Kunstmuseum Luzern, features titled series of reproduced photographs of scenes and actions performed in nature and, printed on glossy pages, reproduced photographs of installations and sculptures (perhaps better described as ‘events’) that contain scenes, objects, or aspects from the photographs and that somehow involve an element of action, with a text in English and German by Thomas Boutoux about the experience of viewing Bock’s exhibition;

“Listening to a conversation, we don’t so much respond as join in. We don’t actively perform an action, we become part of the action. This is how it felt being in the exhibition of Katinka Bock in Lucerne that evening. The fact that this evening was th evening of the opening of the exhibition, that it integrated us visitors in an even more complex community of actions than probably on any other day of the exhibition, did not make it necessarily the more salient moment in the course of the exhibition, but only helped to understand it better as an event.
