The equivalence of a conformal metric on 4-dimensional space-time and a local field of 3-dimensional subspaces of the space of 2-forms over space-time is discussed and the basic notion of transection is introduced. Corresponding relation is spread to the metric case in terms of notion of normalized ordered oriented transection field. As a result, one obtains a possibility to handle the metric geometry without any references to the metric tensor itself on a distinct base which nevertheless contains all the information on metricity. Moreover, the notion of space-time curvature is provided with its natural counterpart in the transection `language' in a form of curvature endomorphism as well. To globalize the local constructions introduced, a certain fiber bundle is defined whose sections are equivalent to normalized ordered oriented transection fields and locally to the metric tensor on space-time. The criterion distinguishing the Lorentz geometry is discussed. The resulting alternative method of the description of space-time metricity, dealing with exterior forms foliation alone, seems to be of a power compatible with one of the standard concept based on the metric tensor.
