An artist trio formed by Eva Rucki, Conny Freyer and Sebastien Noel, Troika deals with the subjective and objective readings of reality and the various relationships we form with technology. They explore the ways in which the digital world informs and crosses over into the physical one and how technological advancement influences our relationship with the world and with each other. They work together on every canvas, associating the experience to playing in a band where each member can take a lead at any time.
Before forming Toika in 2003, Eva Rucki, Conny Freyer and Sebastien Noel have had successful careers in the creative industries and throughout the last ten years have frequently come together to collaborate on projects devised around their passion for music, film and contemporary culture. They currently live and work in London. They exhibited in a range of venues, including Le Lieu Unique, Nantes, France, Barbican Gallery, London, OMR Gallery, Mexico City, MX, Ron Mandos Gallery, Amsterdam,, Galerie Huit, Hong Kong, HK, NC Arte, Bogotá, CO, Kohn Gallery, Los Angeles, USA, Daelim Museum, Seoul, KR, and HCFA Gallery, London, UK.
