In NOW, Jorinde Voigt’s fourth solo exhibition at Galerie Klüser, the artist is showing three new groups of work. Visitors will be able to see the series Now, Hauro and Synchronicity. It is getting very difficult to call Jorinde Voigt’s current works drawings; in more general terms, they should perhaps be seen as pictorial and imaginary worlds. In her latest works on paper pictorial elements come to the fore, while aspects of writing retreat into the background. Voigt’s typical grid of lines, numbers and written words creates the base for emergent, exuberant, scarcely assignable constellations of colours and forms.
About the artist
The Berlin-based artist Jorinde Voigt explores reality and perception by constructing space, time, speed and form in an analytic way. In order to translate phenomena like melodies and literature into figurative and aesthetic dimensions, Voigt develops her own visual language. She transfers the cognitive process with fine pencil lines and notations into her artistic system. Starting from drawing, the artist also experiments with several techniques and materials, from colour compositions with various drawing tools via gilded prints through to collages with cut out silhouettes or layers of feathers. Despite these continuous variations, the visualisation system remains constant. From 2014-2019 Voigt taught as Professor for painting and graphics at the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich. Now she teaches at the Academy of Fine Arts in Hamburg. Galerie Klüser has been representing the Frankfurt-born artist (1977) since 2009. Her work is included in several internationally renowned collections such as the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris, the Staatliche Graphische Sammlung in Munich, the Pinakothek der Moderne in Munich, the Sammlung Staatliche Museen zu Berlin – Kupferstichkabinett in Berlin and the Kunsthaus Zürich in Zurich.
