The Common Guild presents a solo exhibition of work by the German artist Katinka Bock, her first in the UK.

Bock works with a range of natural and manmade materials that undergo a series of processes of alteration and translation. Bock often takes a given space as the starting point for her work, and this exhibition taps into the history of 21 Woodlands Terrace as a domestic building, and the history of Glasgow as a place of exchange and transaction.

With thanks to the Goethe Institut Glasgow.
