Musée éclaté de la presqu'île de Caen
Curatorship: Claire Le Restif
Among fifteen cultural institutions associated with MéPIC, the Musée éclaté de la Presqu’île de Caen, the Centre d’art contemporain d’Ivry - le Crédac invited the artist Katinka Bock to propose a specific work on the site of the commune of Amfreville.
“With their great formal simplicity, Katinka Bock’s sculptures and installations are a reflection on the context in which they are found. She uses elementary materials such as ceramics and wood and experiments with new creative methods, sometimes letting natural elements (rain, drying time) affect the final form.‘Katinka Bock’s method of speaking about a social reality is never immediate. It takes the path or detour of formal reflection” (Patrick Javault).
The Musée éclaté (MéPIC), located at the crossroads of heritage and creation, is spread across a region whose past, present and future are dominated by water, the central theme of Normandie Impressioniste 2013. Alongside the major heritage exhibitions being presented in the second edition of the festival, the école supérieure d’arts & médias de Caen/Cherbourg, at the initiative of the Communauté d’agglomération Caen la Mer, has mobilised to develop an original concept contrasting in every respect with traditional idea people have of museums.
As part of the Normandy Impressionist Festival.
Born in 1976, Katinka Bock lives and works in Paris.
