For her first solo exhibition in Canada, _o_o__o, titled in reference to hosting city Toronto, the Paris-based artist Katinka Bock reveals to the public of a new body of work including a Super 8 film, a series of photographs, architectural and site interventions, and sculptural works.

Using clay, natural, and found materials, and more recently bronze, Katinka Bock (France, born Germany 1976) creates sculptures and installations that explore temporality and space, mining the territories of history and geography. Her work deals with questions about language, common space, with installations and sharing.

She was an artist-in residence at Villa Medicis in Rome, and was awarded with the Dorothea von Stetten Kunstpreis in Germany, the Prix Ricard in France and the production prize of Fundacion Botin in Spain. Some solo exhibitions include Kunstmuseum Stuttgart, MAMCO, Geneva and Henry Art Gallery, Seattle, USA. Upcoming solo projects include Kunstmuseum Winthertur, Mudam Luxembourg, IAC Villeurbanne, Siobhan Davies Studio in London and Common Guild in Glasgow.
