RMB CITY 3, 2007 - Cao Fei
About the Artist
About Cao Fei
For one of her most ambitious projects, RMB City (2009), Cao created a virtual world within the Second Life platform—where users can create avatars and live out virtual lives—consisting of various Chinese cities superimposed on top of one another to function as a hyperreal microcosm of Chinese society at large. As Cao's avatar, China Tracy, navigates the city, the desires and motivations in real life quickly surface in the online world, suggesting that the dilemmas intrinsic to the human condition persist in both real and virtual reality.
Cao has been the subject of numerous exhibitions, including showings at the Guggenheim Museum (2009), the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in Denmark (2009), and the 2007 Istanbul Biennial. She was also included in The Generational: Younger Than Jesus at the New Museum (2009).Read Less
