The unique visual language Jorinde Voigt (*1977 in Frankfurt am Main) develops in her drawings aims at making the invisible visible. Music, weather, geography, literature, and philosophy are among the subjects that serve as sources of inspiration for Voigt’s lyrical drawings, all of which she renders into a dizzying maelstrom of lines and notations as one thought is linked to the next. In Piece for Words and Views, Voigt turns to Roland Barthes’s famous book A Lover’s Discourse: Fragments to produce a series of thirty-six drawings, each of which contains elements of collage cut to represent particular words found in the book—thereby recreating the central tenets of semiotics: signifier and signified. With texts by John Yau and the artist, this publication presents Jorinde Voigt’s complex pictorial spaces, which come together in a composition of form and idea.In her drawings JORINDE VOIGT (*1977 in Frankfurt am Main) develops a kind of semantic code that seems extremely subjective and individual, yet is subjected to strict rules and systems. In the process her notations create visual spaces that employ an artistic, philosophical procedure to unfold the world in its fundamental parameters, such as distance, speed, direction, frequency, pop charts, genres, and much more, while at the same time revealing the simultaneity of all these things.
