Waiting on You


Acrylic, resin board, gold and silver leaf, digital video, fan, electronics, Dollfie

Media sculpture Waiting on You contains a gynoid robot lounging in wait for her next client; she passes the time by watching an advertisement for her own services on a city billboard.

Begun in residence at K11 Art Village, Wuhan, the body of work The Gynoid's Guide to Continuous Service surveys the scene in the not-so-distant future when hyper-real fembots are integrated, in service mode, into existing patriarchal fabrics and socio-industrial complexes. It imagines what 'life' is like for the gynoid, and presents a manual for 'her' professional performance.
