Short and Sweet: TROIKA

With the immersive spatial installation Terminal Beach, designed specifically for the MAK, the London-based artist collective Troika (Eva Rucki, Conny Freyer and Sebastien Noel) unfolds a dystopian scenery at the edge of time, at the end of natural life on our planet, and the interface of the virtual and the material world.

In the eponymous animation film, a robot covered in black fur is chopping down the last tree on Earth to a soundscape of radio waves reminiscent of birdsong. The cinematic plot is continued in the real exhibition space where 3D-printed digital twins of recombined museum objects—“Grenzgänger” (“crossers”)—populate the a flooded landscape as enigmatic hybrid creatures.  
 
With this first solo exhibition in Austria, Troika focuses on the complex forms of non-human intelligence and raises questions regarding the adaptation of living beings to climate change as well as the digital afterlife of human myths, culture, and history.
