Daelim Museum is pleased to present the exhibition Persistent Illusions by acclaimed London-based artist collective Troika from 10 April to 12 October.

Embracing a variety of media, including sculpture, drawing and contemporary installation, the exhibition introduces Troika’s existing and new works. A new edition of Cloud, installed at London’s Heathrow Airport, and Falling Light, created in collaboration with Swarovski, are on display in Korea for the first time, while The Sum of All Possibilities, due to be installed as a public artwork in Seoul at the end of this year, makes a preview appearance. Troika has used a wide variety of materials and processes to develop its own unique and experimental production, creating connections between science and art, technological advancement and human emotion. Its works question why we know what we know, and whether this knowledge is certain, in order to initiate a dialogue with the unknown.

Daelim Museum aims to cast new light on the value of technology, something that constantly disappears after being replaced by newer manifestations, in order to explore the seemingly impossible, unverifiable or irrational things that surround us. The exhibition invites viewers into a special experience through Troika’s installations that rationalize phenomena of light, movement and sound though digital, mechanical and optical experimentation.

Daelim Museum
Located in the historic center of Seoul in Korea, Daelim Museum began its life as Korea’s first specialist photography museum in 1997. Today, it holds exhibitions that embrace not only photography but expand its own boundaries. Our vision is to function as a museum where the everyday becomes art. As such, we strive to create exhibitions that suggest new types of lifestyle, allowing the general public to enjoy art within everyday life by casting new light on the value of the objects that surround us.

Daelim Museum plans a variety of exhibitions, events and education programs that offer the general public the chance to enjoy art and culture on a fun and intimate level. In 2015, we plan to open D Museum, a bigger exhibition venue in the new neighborhood of Seoul. This plan aims to both expand the scale of the museum and present new, progressive and creative exhibitions that reflect the spatial and local character of the new space.
