REPLICANTS borrows its title from the fictional bioengineered beings introduced within the 1982 science fiction film Blade Runner. The exhibition’s framing environment, modeled after Queen’s Road Central in Hong Kong, extends a virtual reproduction of the street and surrounding buildings of Woaw Gallery where REPLICANTS will be featured. This digital inversion of physical space and materiality, while mirroring the malleability of the replica, more broadly considers the limitations and possibilities for techno-reproductions.
The entirety of the REPLICANTS exhibition will be offered as a singular NFT containing a compilation of artworks by participating artists featured therein. The REPLICANTS NFT will be released on October 29th, 2021 in tandem with its inclusion in, and the opening of, the group exhibition TEKNOLUST: OBJECTOPHILIC FUTURES at Woaw Gallery, Hong Kong.
