Troika at Frieze London 2017
5 - 8 Oct. 2017
‘Compression Loss (Venus)’ is part of a new series of sculptures in which Troika take iconic figures and forms and deconstruct them into separate 'slices'.
The series will form part of Troika's upcoming solo exhibition ‘Compression Loss’ at Galería OMR which opens on 11 November 2017. The works in the exhibition stem from Troika’s continuing interest in reductionism and emergence. Utilising various methods of analogue ‘slicing’ - both to objects and intangible phenomena, they collectively investigate the notion that a whole is greater than the sum of its parts. Troika’s sliced sculptures usurp a linear, reductionist viewpoint of knowledge, replacing it with a fragmented, oscillatory one, and through a ‘physical shift’, references the constructed authenticity which now defines our age.
