Katinka Bock

Monday, October 31st, 2011

Katinka Bock was born in Frankfurt am Main in 1976. She studied in Berlin, Dresden, Paris, and then at the École Nationale des Beaux-Arts in Lyon, before coming to Paris in 2007 for a residency lasting several months at the Cité des Arts. Although she was based in Berlin, circumstances have led her to stay on in the French capital. Sculpture has always been at the heart of her studies and interests, though she has also experimented extensively with video, performance art and projects for public spaces. Since coming to Paris, she has ceased to work on collaborative projects, and she finds that the most fertile place for her is not her studio or house, but her mind itself. [...]

Alejandro Almanza

Ahead and beyond of everyone’s time, space and rhythm, 2009. Table, Silverware, chinaware, candles, cutlery, flowers, napkins, cups, vase, table top, chandeliers, disco ball.

Risk and Tension. It seems that Alejandro Almanza likes to keep viewers on their toes. Working mostly with construction materials and domestic interiors, Almanza creates situations of stress through sculpture and installations; a house of cards that precariously threatens to fall or break. Danger seems to be a constant in his work, as well as the exploration of materials and our perceptions of them. How can a set of light bulbs hold a cinderblock? Through his work we realize that the most fragile materials, can also be the strongest ones. [...]

Steve Schepens

Friday, March 26th, 2010

Steve Schepens’ current exhibition at Galerie Van de Weghe in Antwerp is perhaps all too horrifying, but in a good way. It’s not meant to create the type of horror or disgust we find in genre films, but more the kind related to the impalpable; the object and its relationship to space, and the ways we perceive it. In fact, all of Schepens’ work is titled HORROR, with some additional subtitles or numbers, but why this insistence?[...]

Jorge Pineda

Wednesday, February 24th, 2010

The happiest times of our lives are sometimes tarnished by society, making it harder for our youth to adjust. At times children make up invisible characters and construct masks so they can hide their fears. Personified in a cartoonish way, Jorge Pineda’s characters portray these violent and at sometimes destructive ways.[...]
