Jorinde Voigt was born in Frankfurt am Main in 1977. During 1999­–2000, she undertook multimedia studies at the Universitat der Kunste, Berlin, and in 2001, she studied visual culture and photography. In 2004, she completed her Master's degree. In 2002­, the artist took up drawing and designed a system of mark-making. By doing so, Voigt proposes a pictorial form for such invisible phenomena as circuits of airways or birds' migration. By the end of the 2000s, colour gained a dominant role in her graphical charts. For instance, for the Botanic Code project, Jorinde Voigt documented her experience of visiting botanical gardens worldwide: the artist encrypted the pattern of her movement and emotions with the help of colour applied on three-meter aluminium rods. One of the first projects with the usage of collage technique is the series '100 Views on Chinese Erotic Art'. For this project, the artist recorded her visit to the exhibition of the same name and then used colour paper to cut out silhouettes of the details that caught her attention.

Works by Jorinde Voigt reflect on the turn of events and phenomena and visualize the invisible world of time. Her practice, therefore, is set between drawing and performance. In Russia, the artist's first personal exhibition took place in 2010 at OVCHARENKO (until 2018 — Regina).
