Void & Co. is an artistic and curatorial fusion; an inclusive platform for visual art projects currently run by Ditte Knus Tønnesen and Ronja Svaneborg. In their ventures they place thematic emphasis on visual perception and social structures.
Void & Co. was founded in Copenhagen 2018 by Silja Leifsdóttir, Ditte Knus Tønnesen and Ronja Svaneborg, who curated the group exhibition KNOWING ME KNOWING YOU in 2019.
The word void contains several connotations. It is a space that is empty, a place not yet filled, a gap or a vacuum. It can also mean a feeling of emptiness and loneliness; a feeling that something is missing. In its original form, the "void" may not be something to covet, but in this gap, there is enormous potential. A potential to fill out the yet unfilled with content and make sense. With their projects, Void & Co. tries to fill the void with stories that are missing in one way or another.
