Wang Ruobing (b. 1975)

Wang Ruobing was born in Chengdu, China in 1975 and graduated from Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts in 1997. Following that, she went on to study at LASALLE College of the Arts (1997 – 98) and the University of London (2001 – 02). She received her Doctorate degree in Philosophy in Fine Art from Oxford University in 2010, on the Rushkin Scholarship and Lamb and Flag scholarship of Oxford University.

Wang’s work challenges and explores the ways of seeing and the growth of knowledge, often in relation to concerns of everyday activities. Adopting diverse methods and approaches in the presentation of her work, including drawing, film, photography, sculpture and installation, she disrupts perception and draws attention to the anthropological nature. In her recent practice, the artist plays with everyday objects and photographs the urban landscapes to delve ever more deeply into questions of perception in mediating how we see and understand the rapidly changing world. She currently lives and works in Singapore.
