The works in the exhibition, ranging from drawings made with electric charge, to sculpture and installation, share a subtly deceptive nature, unsettling our assumptions of what we perceive as predictable, possible or real.
The show is named after the site specific installation Limits of a Known Territory, in which the space of the foundation has been flooded and elusively sectioned by a controlled choreography of water streams. Drawing upon Troika's interest in the connections between randomness and the exercise of control, the site can be conceived as the stage for a futuristic reminiscence of a casual occurrence or the simulation of a parallel reality.
