Jorinde Voigt put her own spin on ideas inspired by the estate with a complex system of conceptual graphics and diagrams, in which patches of colour meet vector lines and mysterious geometries reminiscent of the Notebooks of Leonardo da Vinci, which contain the thoughts and theories of the most extraordinary figure in Renaissance culture.

The Artist

Jorinde Voigt

She was born in Frankfurt, Germany in 1977. She lives and works in Berlin. Having learned to play the cello at the age of nine, music has always had an important role in her research, along with her interest in philosophy and literature. Jorinde Voigt stands out as an exception among artists of her generation: from the outset, she has worked almost exclusively with drawing, which, for her, has become an immediate tool for measuring reality.

The main solo shows include:

ZKM Museum für Neue Kunst (Karlsruhe, Germany); Centre Pompidou – Musée National d´Art Moderne (Paris); Langen Foundation (Neuss, Germany); Nevada Museum of Art (Reno); Royal Ontario Museum, (Toronto, 2012).
Her works can be found in numerous public collections, including the Art Institute Chicago; Museum of Contemporary Art, Oslo; Centre Pompidou – Musée National d’Art Moderne, Paris; MoMA – Museum of Modern Art, New York; Leal Rios Foundation, Lisbon; Bundeskunstsammlung, Bonn; Kupferstichkabinett, Berlin; Kunstmuseum Stuttgart; Künstlerhaus Bethanien, Berlin.
