Solo Exhibition ‘Compression Loss’ at Galería OMR
Calle Córdoba 100
Cuauhtémoc, Roma Nte.
06700 Ciudad de México
For ‘Compression Loss’ Troika will premiere two new bodies of work alongside existing sculptures and installations. Giving the exhibition its title, ‘Compression Loss’ is a new series of sculptures in which Troika take mythological figures and forms and deconstruct them into separate ‘slices’. The sculptures will be shown alongside a series of large-scale tapestries comprised of copper tape, for which Troika have translated and reenacted an algorithm on a human scale.
The works in the exhibition stem from Troika’s continuing interest in the various models and belief systems used to detail and understand the world. Incorporating the opposing frameworks of technological advancement and mythology, Troika’s works investigate how the application of a purely rational and scientific method onto practical life is often at odds with the subjective and unpredictable.
