‘Between Everything and Nothing’ – er en udstilling om menneskets søgen efter det meningsgivende. En eksistentiel udstilling. Imellem alt og intet, findes ordet OG. Sonja Strange ønsker med denne udstilling, at placere beskueren i dette mellemrum. At blive præsenteret for ALT er uoverskueligt, at blive præsenteret for INTET er uoverskueligt. Derfor står mennesket midt i mellem disse to ekstremer, og prøver herfra at begribe dets eksistens. Altet og intet billedliggøres i udstillingen, ved at gøre brug af blacklight og hvidt lys. De udstillede objekter refererer til menneskets søgen efter det meningsgivende.
