Replicant, Virgil de Voldere Gallery
Sun Jan, 10 2010, 12AM - Tue Feb, 9 2010, 12AM
Virgil de Voldere is proud to present Replicants, a group exhibition of four emerging artists. Rather than brood over a technocratic dystopia, herald clean utopian spaces, or take a reactionary stance on biological and environmental issues such as climate change and bioengineering, this exhibition explores potential futures in which imagination, adaptation, and creativity present a positive view of cultural and scientific progress. The artists—Ian Burns, Shane Hope, Gilles Rotzetter, and Scott Wolniak are wildly divergent in their mediums and methods: the work is outsourced and handmade, meticulous and low-tech, highly conceptual and grounded in materials.
