In her light boxes, Katinka is working with texts that triggers laughter and discomfort.
She brings up experiences we might all relate to, but often remain unsaid due to the discomfort they bring.
By presenting them prominently, her aim is for the audience to take a moment of self-reflection, both on a personal level and in the context of our current society.
Humor serves as her tool to balance out the weightiness and pressure inherent in these topics, allowing her to convey the message clearly.
