Bi Rongrong

Bi Rongrong was born in Ningbo, China in 1982. She received a BA in Chinese Traditional Painting from Southwest Normal University in Chongqing in 2005. She obtained an MFA degree from the Chinese Landscape Painting Department of Sichuan University in 2008.

Solo exhibitions include: Manchester CMYK, Vanguard Gallery, Shanghai, China (2014); 7:3 Colors, public art project at the Shanghai World Financial Centre, Shanghai, China (2013); The Landscape is Called Sweet Faith, Museum aan de A7, Drachten, The Netherlands (2011). A selection of group exhibitions include: The 2nd CAFAM Future Exhibition, Central Academy of Fine Art Museum, Beijing, China (2015); Presenting Recital Louder Than Paint, Shanghai Gallery of Art, Shanghai, China (2014); A Tangible Shadow, Building C, Sifang Collective, Nanjing, China (2014); Waves, Bund 18 Temporary Art Space, Shanghai, China (2013). Bi has participated in residencies at Les Verriers Residences-ateliers de Pont-Aven, France (2012); Swatch Art Peace Hotel, Shanghai, China (2013) and Centre for Chinese Contemporary Art, Manchester, UK (2014). Bi lives and works in Shanghai, China.

Bi Rongrong’s work most often takes the form of paintings, murals or installations. Drawing is always the starting point of her work and acts as a way of recording spaces and places. She considers her installations to be three-dimensional extrapolations of her drawings. As a child, she often saw the surrounding mountain landscape as a geometric abstraction, whilst in contrast to this she became fluent in creating highly detailed studies of the landscape during her MFA in Chinese Landscape Painting. Bi’s new spatial constructions are a combination of her early interest in the geometry and abstraction found in nature, and her classical training in landscape painting.
