A Series Of Works By The Artist Who Uses Drawings To Present Her Perception Of Nature – Bi Rongrong
Bi Rongrong is a Chinese artist from Ningbo, Zhejiang Province. She is currently based in Shanghai. This collection comprises 25 paper works by Bi Rongrong, never before shown together. These pieces reflect her artistic journey between 2008 and 2016.
In 2005, Bi Rongrong received a Bachelors degree in Chinese Traditional Painting from Southwest Normal University in Chongqing. Afterwards, she continued her study in the Chinese Landscape Painting Department in Sichuan University, and obtained a Masters of Fine Art degree in 2008. In 2010, She received her MFA from the Frank Mohr Institute, Groningen, The Netherlands.
In her current practice, Bi Rongrong makes drawings, murals and site-specific installations. She often starts with drawings to present her perception of nature. In the context of exhibition, she searches to create a dialogue between the drawings and the exhibition space. Therefore, the space is used as a possible surface for her drawings, which are expending themselves from a room to another, from a plane to another, in order to transform their perceptions.
