On October 1, Erik Parker will present, Switchstance Bay, 2017, the artist's first-ever Virtual Reality work at the Faurschou Foundation in Beijing. The work will be on view through October 27.
Viewers will find themselves immersed in a surreal world unnatural and brightly colored lush vegetation, fresh out of Parker’s imagination. This entrancing scene quickly turns from paradise to dystopia, and delves into themes of global climate change and environmental disaster.
Virtual Reality Art will feature 5 consecutive presentation by artists Christian Lemmerz, Erik Parker, Paul McCarthy, Tony Oursler and Yu Hong at the Faurschou Foundation in Beijing through February 3, 2018. Each artwork will be exhibited for a one-month period with complementary sketches, books and artworks for each of the artists and their Virtual Reality pieces.
