Jorinde Voigt

by Astrid Chastka | July 27, 2015

Jorinde Voigt’s drawings are an amalgam of thoughts, musical scores, forms, and words. Her works explores sound, movement, time, form, perception, and science, and translates it into something visual. She says, “My work is like music, you can enjoy it without being able to read the score.”

In 9 Times Philosphy, her second solo exhibition, she exhibited a series of drawings based on literary texts, including Wassily Kandinsky’s exchange of letters with Arnold Schonberg, Haikus by various Japanese poets, amongst many other writings. Voigt then uses a coded from of writing to transforms these texts into visual compositions.   Although her process is very complex, the overall appearance of her drawings is ordered, yet still chaotic and unexpected.
