Jorinde Voigt | Wall Drawing Series: Jorinde Voigt
Menil Drawing Institute, Housten, TX, USA | 28.9.2019–31.3.2020
Berlin-based artist Jorinde Voigt was commissioned to create a monumental new work for the Menil Drawing Institute. Voigt’s work is the second in an ongoing series of wall drawings in the interior entry space of the Drawing Institute. Known primarily for her works on paper, Voigt’s complex notational systems are influenced by musical scores, philosophy, and scientific diagrams. This new work responds to the vegetation and natural resources endemic to Houston and the Gulf Coast region, using mark-making strategies evocative of artists like Joseph Beuys and Cy Twombly.
