Persistent Illusions by Troika

Electroprobe Installation #5 lets visitors listen in on a parallel polyphonic soundscape.

Until 12 October, visitors to the Daelim Museum in Seoul can experience new works from Troika in a solo exhibition.

Persistent Illusions combines existing and new works by Troika in Seoul’s Daelim Museum. The South Korean city will see the London-based studio’s explorations through a variety of media, including sculpture – which, years ago,  brought them to the attention of us here at Frame – drawing and installation. The first solo show for Troika in Korea, Persistent Illusions centres around the trio’s fascination with science and asks visitors to expand their minds.

New works on display include Labyrinth, Electroprobe Installation #5, Calculating the Universe and 90 squares. Soot from burning candles finds its way through a wooden maze to create Labyrinth, while Electroprobe Installation #5 lets visitors listen in on a parallel polyphonic soundscape. Calculating the Universe addresses increasing complexities within simple interactions and 90 squares intricately explores the possibility that a square – or 90 of them – can never create a perfect circle.

Persistent Illusions is on show at the Daelim Museum in Seoul, South Korea until 12 October 2014.
