Winners of the Salomon Foundation Residency Award 2018, Arnaud Eeckhout (1987, BE) and Mauro Vitturini (1985, IT) have founded VOID out of a common ambition : to use sound as a medium to represent reality.

The emblematic immateriality of this medium is given shape through an interdisciplinary practice that connects different fields in the form of installations, sculptures, objects, books, drawings, videos, paintings, performances…
Sound fascination lies in its feature to be so powerful while being so invisible and immaterial - as evoked by the duo’s name VOID. Sound needs matter to exist, to spread through. In VOID’s work, sound doesn’t only find different materials to become invisible: it becomes the material itself.
Their practice addresses the same philosophical, poetic or formal issues as the paint on a painter’s canvas. But for VOID, the question of representation starts from a different point: how to see with the ears.
Despite its focus on sound, VOID’s research immediately found its place in the visual art field with ambition of freeing the acoustic medium from the common tendency to restrict it to other fields. Driven by an experimental research in which theoretical inputs and empirical experiments interact, the forms come up by trials and mistakes, sometimes in collaboration with scientists or engineers. The creative process occupies an essential place in every artwork of the duo, where nothing completely freezes.
