"Can you fuck it?" – The Fembot Phenomenon takes as its title one of the prevailing online comments made each time a newly developed female-appearing robot is introduced in the mainstream media. "Fine, nice work there, but can you fuck it?," ask the anonymous legions on the internet.

In response to this response, the exhibition brings together four accomplished international women artists working in Asia, who consistently take female-appearing robots as subjects in their practice. Using humor, deconstruction, and the speculative reframing of a familiar figure, we offer an engaging and up-to-date critique of the modern phenomenon of the fembot.
