Silent Language
  • Artist’s book with drawings by Inken Reinert. The series of drawings Silent Language drawings superimpose curves and diagrammes from a scientific book about electro-accoustic notation of voices.

    "Eine Zeichnung, die in mehreren Stunden sorg­fältiger Arbeit entstand, mutet an wie ein flüchtig hingeworfener Pinselstrich, wie das Protokoll einer raschen Handbewegung, einer Geste." Markus Wettstein

    "Eighty years later, Inken Reinert delved into the tables of the mechanical recordings of words we can no longer hear. When she eventually began drawing on the charts, the voices of the Italian men and women seem to resonate with her. The artist becomes a medium that records and transforms the sounds of those words spoken many years ago." Ania Corcilius
