The artist’s most recent cycle of works

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.

This volume features drawings from the 32-part cycle, Ludwig van Beethoven, Sonatas 1-32, in which the artist attempts to use music as the theme without illustrating or interpreting it. Here, according to Voigt, the greatest challenge was “to develop a method of notation capable of extracting the emotional range that is inscribed in Beethoven’s music.”
