Descripción de la Exposición
OMR is pleased to announce Troika’s third solo presentation in the gallery, To See a World Through a Grain of Salt. Untertage – from the German “underneath the day” – is the title of an overarching narrative that Troika has been developing over the course of several years, which has resulted in various new bodies of work. The main protagonist of this story is salt, which is portrayed – in its many different guises – as a conscious entity that has manipulated humans over millennia to mine and raise it above ground, with its endgame being to establish its own kingdom from which to rule Earth. Salt’s manipulation first started millions of years ago by luring humans into unearthing it, in the form of flint, to give us our very first tools such as axes and bifaces. Then salt convinced us through its never-ending usefulness to spread it throughout the centuries all ... over the world by enabling us to preserve, to bleach, to build, to fertilise, to dye, and to trade. More recently, it made us discover its sensitivity to light, allowing us by way of photography to record, and thus control the land. By now, salt has become omnipresent in its more refined form – silicon, used in electronics and computing; and by extension it is now acquiring consciousness (AI) to dominate the planet and populate it with its own kind.
