Troika is a collaborative contemporary art practice formed by Eva Rucki (b. 1976, Germany), Conny Freyer (b. 1976, Germany), and Sebastien Noel (b. 1977, France) who all live and work in London and have worked as an artist trio since 2003. Their work revolves around assumptions of knowledge and processes for attaining it. With a particular interest in temporality, the frameworks through which we perceive the world and the subjective and objective readings of reality, we use digital and high tech processes and methods of production ranging from high voltage electricity, 3D programs, optics, light or soot as a means to form a kind of coalition between the increasingly abstract landscape surrounding us and experiences on a human scale. Troika’s work is part of the permanent collections of the Victoria & Albert Museum London, The Art Institute of Chicago,British Council, MoMA New York, M+ Hong Kong and the Israel Museum. In 2010, Troika was commissioned by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office to produce three site-specific installations for the UK Pavilion, designed by Heatherwick Studio, at the Shanghai Expo. In 2014 Troika was selected to present their work ‘Dark Matter’ at Unlimited, Art Basel. Select solo exhibitions include NCArte, Bogota, CO (2015); Unlimited Art Basel (2014); Kohn gallery, LA (2014); Daelim Museum, Seoul (2014); and Galeria OMR, Mexico City (2013). Their work has been shown in numerous institutions including Fondation Vasarely, Aix-en-Provence, FR (2016); Kunstmuseum Stuttgart, DE (2016); Zentrum für Kunst und Medientechnologie, Karlsruhe, DE (2015 and 2013); the Lehmbruck Museum, Duisburg, DE (2015); Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg, DE (2015); Centre PasquArt, Biel/Bienne, CHE (2015); Drawing Room, London, UK (2015); and Haus Konstruktiv, Zurich, CH (2015).
