Troika is a Franco-German contemporary art group formed by Eva Rucki (b. 1976, Germany), Conny Freyer (b. 1976, Germany) and Sebastien Noel (b. 1977, France) in 2003.

Working across media in sculpture, film, installation, and painting, their work contemplates humanity’s experiences and attitudes towards new technologies and how these transform our understanding and relationships to nature, each other and the wider world. Their artworks broach themes that include artificial intelligence, algorithmic data, forms of life, virtual and physical representation systems. 

Their practice is often based in research and explores systems of knowledge in the fields of natural philosophy and the history of technology. In 2019 Troika started a research project together with biologists, neuroscientists, the British Antarctic Survey and physicists from Cambridge University which will culminate in a book and a permanent outdoor installation at Cambridge University in 2023.

Troika’s work is part of the permanent collections of M+, Hong Kong, the Victoria & Albert Museum London, The Art Institute of Chicago, MoMA New York, Jumex Collection Mexico, the Israel Museum and Centre Georges Pompidou.

In 2023 Troika was commissioned by Häusler Contemporary for R&V to create a large-scale location-specific installation, ’Squaring the Circle’, in Wiesbaden, Germany.

Eva Rucki, Conny Freyer and Sebastien Noel live and work in London. Troika is represented by Max Goelitz (Munich), OMR (Mexico City), and Ron Mandos (Amsterdam).
