The fifth and final Virtual Reality artwork of the exhibition, Virtual Reality Art, is a new piece by Chinese painter, Yu Hong, premiered at Faurschou Foundation Beijing. In the piece, She's Already Gone, the viewer is invited to follow the life of a female character from birth to old age. As the character's life moves forward, the viewer will notice that history itself moves backwards. Yu Hong has hand-painted every detail within each scene, bringing her artistic language into the Virtual Reality world. All five Virtual Reality works shown at Faurschou Foundation Beijing serve as strong examples for the broad spectrum that this new medium works with.

The overall exhibition, Virtual Reality Art, is exhibited in Beijing from 27.08.17 - 03.02.18, and consists of 5 consecutive "sub-exhibitions" for each participating artist: Christian Lemmerz, Erik Parker, Paul McCarthy, Tony Oursler, and Yu Hong. Each artwork is exhibited for a one-month period with complementary sketches, books and artworks for each of the artists and their respective Virtual Reality pieces.

Faurschou Foundation is glad to continue collaborating with Khora Contemporary. Khora Contemporary was established in 2016 in Copenhagen, and conducts extensive research on this progressive medium, and specializes in translating the vision of established and emerging artists into the language of Virtual Reality.
