The first UK solo exhibition of drawings by the Berlin-based artist comes to the Lisson Gallery. The intricately drawn large-scale works on paper composed of networks of sweeping arcs, arrows, lines and labels represent written recordings of sonic vibrations.
Reminiscent of seismographic readings, the drawings capture a precise and measured moment in time, mapping the world in all its complexity and diversity. Voigt draws her inspiration from philosophy and literature but with an added dimension. The former photographer who grew frustrated by that medium and its inability to decipher the truth in art continues to challenge with her work.
A nominee for the 2010 Future Generation Art Prize and winner of the 2008 Otto Dix Prize Voigt aims to uncover the truth behind objectivity and subjectivity and succeeds.
