Eva Rucki (b. 1976, Germany), Conny Freyer (b. 1976, Germany) and Sebastien Noel (b. 1977, France) have worked together as an artist trio since 2003. Their works manipulate our experience and understanding of the world and ask the question why we know what we know, and whether this knowledge is certain. Troika explores ideas around man made structures, control, repetitive actions and systems and how these coincide, conflict, or unite with the unpredictable, the unknowable, and irrational. Troika’s work is part of the permanent collections of the Victoria & Albert Museum London, The Art Institute of Chicago, MoMA New York and the Israel Museum. In 2014 Troika was selected to present their work ‘Dark Matter’ at Unlimited, Art Basel. Eva Rucki, Conny Freyer and Sebastien Noel live and work in London. Troika is represented by Kohn Gallery in Los Angeles and OMR in Mexico City.

Belgrade Design week unlike so may other city design events has a wonderfully essential vibe about it. Nothing pretentious in the air but big bags of energy and enthusiasm. It feels like the Serbs haven't already decided what design is and so are open and ready to riff off the ideas that come in to sharp focus over these precious days. The city itself has a gritty charm about it which complements the event perfectly.
