Encompassing installation as well as drawing, painting and text, Jorinde Voigt’s work is shaped by everyday acts, interaction with her environment and a steady stream of reading. In pursuit of greater subjective insight, Voigt has developed a visual grammatology comprised of straight and curved lines, numbers, words and collage elements. Her graphic system enables her to project objects under investigation into a field of inquiry and interrelation.

Among her solo exhibitions are A New Kind of Joy, Kunsthalle Nürnberg, Germany (2017); SCORES, Hamburger Bahnhof – Museum für Gegenwart, Berlin (2016); Song of the Earth - Chapter 1: Radical Relaxation (Stress + Freedom), Chapter 2: The Shift, Kunstraum Innsbruck, Austria (2016); Cartographies of the Untold, The Baker Museum, Artis—Naples, Naples, US (2015) and Jorinde Voigt: Superpassion, MACRO Museo d’Arte Contemporanea, Rome (2013).
