"Don't Touch anything and you'll be safe, You're very close to death." says Sebastien Noel. We're huddling under a shed of sorts built from small timbers and draped in plastic. The structure covers a 5 by 10 foot sheet of woven matte photo paper that is sprawled across tempered-glass table, which the Franco-Italian artist and his German partners, Eva Rucki and Conny Freyer, known professionally as Troika, use to create their increasingly popular "light: drawings.

Relinquishing control is the central theme of London-based trio Troika’s “Cartography of Control.” It’s the first stateside show for the collective formed by Conny Freyer, Eva Rucki and Sebastien Noel, who employ a distinctly scientific approach to their work. The eloquently heady exhibition, currently on view at Kohn Gallery’s 12,000-square-foot space in Hollywood, uses experimental procedures to question the really big stuff, like the laws of gravity or the path of least resistance. Though their work nods to mid-century mathematicians like Alan Turing and Einstein who were masters of prediction, Troika feel at ease leaving the outcome of their own experiments to fate. Read More

When it comes to the universe or nature, can we really talk of control? Human being have been relying on their developing notion of knowledge in order to understand and practice the way of governing forces we might not truly understand. And, what of it? We have managed to gain control over the vastness of the ocean, travelled to the Moon and harnessed the power of electricity? But what does this control entail? How far can our scientific methods lead us in this quest for control? Find out at Kohn Gallery in the upcoming period… Read More
