In her new cycle of works, the artist Jorinde Voigt (*1977, Frank- furt am Main) again confronts the invisible: How do we perceive something? Immersion-the experience of complete absorption-is performatively expressed in Voigt's art. Each piece begins with a series of actions that start when the paper is fully immersed in paint. At the center of each composition hovers the figure of the torus, an archaic, cell-like shape that Voigt conceives of as a model for perception, in combination with arrows, axes, and lines. The cycle comprises various formats, techniques, and materials, including ink, pencil, pastels, copper, and aluminum. This publication presents numerous plates featuring the 2018 cycle and provides documentary insight into the artist's creative process.

Bilingual: German and English.
