All Colours White, 2016 (Artefact coproductie)


All Colours White explores the relationship between what is natural and artificial and the plurality of seemingly indivisible entities and experiences. It consists of a mechanism which projects red, blue and green light onto a canvas sculpture. The projection is a constant loop of 12 minutes. Initially distinct, the colours gradually bleed into each other, creating an intricate spectrum until their collective amalgamation results in pure white light. In contrast to the black box approach, All Colours White lays bare the technology and invites the curious viewer to consider the idea that understanding and enchantment can exist in the same universe.

In addition, in the installation the natural and the digital collide. The specific combination of red, blue and green references the colours that mediate our digital experience, while the composite colour spectrum inherent in white light is intrinsically natural. With a particular interest in temporality, subjective experience and the frameworks through which we perceive the world, All Colours White investigates that which coexists but cannot be experienced simultaneously.


°2003, London

In 2003 the artists Eva Rucki (°1976, Germany), Conny Freyer (°1976, Germany) and Sebastien Noel (°1977, France) formed the contemporary art collective Troika. Together they share a particular interest in science and art, animation and human agency. Their works question the notions of knowledge and control, analysing what it means to be human in the age of technology, and the impact of technological advancement on individual action. The impact of technology on individuals is one of the main subjects throughout their oeuvre. Works such as Squaring the Circle, All Colours White, Sonic Marshmallows, Cloud and the various iterations of  Electroprobe Installations find themselves at the intersection of art, magic and science. They become a means to explore the impossible, unverifiable and irrational objects that surround us. Troika is based in London and is represented by Kohn Gallery in Los Angeles and OMR in Mexico City.
