Overview

Music, weather, geography, literature and philosophy are among the subjects that inspire Jorinde Voigt’s mesmerizing diagrammatic drawings, all of which she renders into a dizzying maelstrom of lines and notations as one idea links to the next. In Piece for Words and Views, Voigt turns to Roland Barthes’ A Lover’s Discourse to produce 36 drawings, which this volume gathers.

On closer inspection, however, the drawings resolve into a hermetic, highly personal disquisition on the history of love in Western Europe, with annotations borrowed from the writings of the prolific German sociologist Niklas Luhmann.
