As the frontline of Beijing's modern art, the Ullens Center for Contemporary Art has launched its final group of exhibitions for 2011.

Four exhibitions of Chinese, French and Thai artists have been put on display. Now, let's head to the art hall and check it out.

Parallax is a site-specific installation by Kolkoz, a French duo. There are four ornate sculptures composed entirely of picture frames nested within each other. Also, two series of photographs meet the audience.

One consists of pictures taken by Kolkoz in various museums around the world. Another is a series of photographs taken by NASA during 1960s when astronauts where training in Arizona for a moon-landing.

The Interior Divination is the work of young artist Tang Yuhan. She recreates her parents' home and rearranges its decoration in accordance with the principles of Chinese Fengshui and the Book of Changes.

Another installation is by leading Thai film director Apichatpong Weerasethakul. The exhibition is titled "For Tomorrow, For Tonight," and leads visitors through a cinematic narration of night.

And the most anticipated exhibition is a sculpture and video installation from Beijing's revered sculptor Zhan Wang. He exploded a gigantic boulder up in air and recorded the event on hi-definition cameras in six different angles at 2000 frames per second. The footage is projected onto giant screens and stainless-steel rocks are scattered all over the space.

The 4 exhibitions will run through next February.
