Discover more about them:
Ania Vouloudi (b. 1987) is a photographer, video artist and poet with a background in civil engineering. She currently lives and works in Thessaloniki, Greece. Chronicling her life in analogue images, Vouloudi’s artistic work presents docufiction stories that address the apparent banality of daily routine. Her approach is both low-fi and unpretentious. Rooted in photography, the installations she creates also feature audio, writing and objects. Zine-making is another important feature of Vouloudi’s practice; she has collaborated with Void since its inception, co-publishing two zines in 2016 and 2017.
Elena Helfrecht (b. 1992) is a German visual artist based in Bavaria. She graduated with an MA in Photography from the Royal College of Art in 2019, having previously studied Art and Image History at Berlin’s Humboldt-Universität, and Art History and Book Science at Erlangen’s Friedrich-Alexander-Universität. With a dark, eerie aesthetic, Helfrecht’s work navigates thresholds of fiction and reality, exploring existential questions of mortality, trauma, memory and post-memory. With Void, Helfrecht will launch her first solo monograph in the fall of 2023.
Eva Vei (b. 1996) is a Greek visual artist whose projects revolve around notions of communication and intimacy within everyday interactions. Through quasi-documentary strategies and non-linear visual narratives, she tackles issues of identity and belonging whilst probing at the boundaries of the photographic medium. Vei holds a BA in History and Theory of Art from the Department of Fine Arts and Art Science at the University of Ioannina. She is also a graduate of Athens’ Focus School of Photography and New Media.
Maria Siorba (b. 1986) is a Greek visual artist based in Athens, with an educational background in Communication, Graphic Design and Fine Arts. Taking a subtle approach to subjects of intimacy and human emotion, the notion of empathy is a cornerstone of Siorba’s artistic exploration. She examines the role that personality, mental state, emotional intelligence and cultural context play in the context of ever-evolving modes of technology and communication. Communicating and miscommunicating, her images reflect the difficulties that humans encounter in expressing themselves.
Vic Bakin (b. 1984) is a self-educated Ukrainian photographer. In Kyiv, the artist explores various local groups – queer and fashion scenes, rave and music culture, and even closed communities like student dormitories. In light of new and evolving local circumstances, Bakin’s focus has since shifted to the subject of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. His diaristic personal projects use of analogue photography to probe at questions of identity; with Void, Bakin is currently working on his debut photobook.
