A Void gathers works from eight artists who have addressed the absences created by systemic violence against specific groups of people, and juxtaposes them with eight artworks that have been lost to war.

About

The exhibition is anchored around George Perec's 1969 novel “A Void”. This book was written without using the letter “e”, or as one would say in French "sans e”, which when read out loud sounds like "sans eux" –which translates to “without them”. “E” is the most common letter in the French language, and this writing constraint is considered a coded reference to the loss of Perec’s family to the Holocaust.
