Product Description

In the book “Views on Views of Decameron” the German artist Jorinde Voigt explores the relationship between text and image, addressing the literary and visual culture of Italy. Her source of inspiration was the novel “Decameron” by Boccaccio. In the series Jorinde Voigt develops a double vision procedure (views on views), resulting from a process of perception of a number of visual documents inspired by Boccaccio’s tales. The double vision is the result of a process that starts from the text and, through the gaze of old masters allows the artist to develop her own vision. The book includes a text by Peter Lang.

This book is published on the occasion of the exhibition:
