About the work
Once in the middle of each week a law of nature compels us to move to and fro with a rhythmic motion of more than usual violence which continues for the time you would take to count a hundred and one. In the midst of this choral dance, at the fifty fiirst pulsation, the hinabitants of the Universe pause in full career, and each individual sends forth his richest, fullest, sweetest strain. It is in this decisive moment that all our marriages are made. So exquisite is the adaptation of Bass to Treble or Tenor to Contralto, that often times the Loved Ones, thought twenty thousand leagues away, recognize at once the responsive note of thir destine Lover; and , penetrating the paltry obstacles of distance, Love Unites the three. The marriage in that instant consummated results in a threefold Male and Female offspring.
(Edwin Abbott - Flatland)

In 2015 the FRAC PACA invited Cathryn Boch for a solo show at the Plateau experimental. In October 2016 she had have her second solo exhibition at Galerie Papillon.
Her practise is predominantly focused on drawing. Ephemeral figures and maps blend into large constellations. However, paper is not only support, it becomes source and medium of her work. She physically works the paper; her technique includes sanding, scraping, oiling, piercing, stitching and reassembling. The final "drawing" reveals the physical struggle with the paper. The artist invades the material while sewing; developing the surface in its depth. The paper finally turns into volume.
