Cao Fei x BMW M6 GT3

Cao Fei is one of the most innovative young Chinese artists to have emerged onto the international scene.

Currently living in Beijing, she mixes social commentary, popular aesthetics, references to Surrealism, and documentary conventions in her films and installations.

She exhibited her works and projects in Serpentine Gallery, Tate Modern (London); New Museum, Guggenheim Museum, MoMA PS1 (New York); Palais de Tokyo and Centre Pompidou (Paris).

Cao Fei takes the series into the 21st century by creating the first digital BMW Art Car. Her work is a reflection on the speed.

With her BMW Art Car project, Cao Fei delves into a trajectory spanning thousands of years, paying tribute to Asia’s ancient spiritual wisdom as it swiftly spreads out into the third millennium.

The multimedia artist approached the BMW Art Car in a way typical for her artistic practice, building a parallel universe.

The body of work consists of three different components: a video focusing on a time traveling spiritual practitioner, augmented reality features picturing colorful light particles and the BMW M6 GT3 racecar in its original carbon black.
