Daelim Museum in Seoul presents the exhibition by acclaimed London-based artist collective Troika, until 12 October 2014. Embracing a variety of media, including sculpture, drawing and contemporary installation, the exhibition introduces Troika’s existing and new works.
A new edition of Cloud, installed at London’s Heathrow Airport, and Falling Light, created in collaboration with Swarovski, are on display in Korea for the first time, while The Sum of All Possibilities, due to be installed as a public artwork in Seoul at the end of this year, makes a preview appearance.
Troika has used a wide variety of materials and processes to develop its own unique and experimental production, creating connections between science and art, technological advancement and human emotion. Its works question why we know what we know, and whether this knowledge is certain, in order to initiate a dialogue with the unknown.
Daelim Museum aims to cast new light on the value of technology, something that constantly disappears after being replaced by newer manifestations, in order to explore the seemingly impossible, unverifiable or irrational things that surround us. The exhibition invites viewers into a special experience through Troika’s installations that rationalise phenomena of light, movement and sound through digital, mechanical and optical experimentation.
Eva Rucki (b. 1976, Germany), Conny Freyer (b. 1976, Germany) and Sebastien Noel(b. 1977, France) have worked together as an artist trio since 2003. They live and work in London and met while studying at the Royal College of Art. With a particular interest in perception and the spatial experience, their work explores the intersection of rational thought, observation and the changing nature of human experience through drawing, sculpture and contemporary installation.
Troika has been featured in numerous group shows at institutions such as: the MoMA New York (2008), the Victoria & Albert Museum London (2009), The Art Institute of Chicago (2009), Tate Britain (2007), and their work is represented in the permanent collections of the Israel Museum Jerusalem, British Council, The Art Institute of Chicago, Victoria and Albert Museum and the Museum Of Modern Art New York. In 2010 Troika were selected to create three art installations for the UK Pavilion at the World Expo Shanghai.
