Artist Bi Rongrong has taken up a three month residency at the Centre for Chinese Contemporary Art.
Bi Rongrong focuses on drawing as a way of taking notes on everyday life – with subject matters such as nature, objects in their surrounding environments and structures providing inspiration and influence on her work.
The residency, which runs from 2nd August to 2nd November, will see the Shanghai based artist taking inspiration from the local area, exploring the relationship of nature to the city and will also see her producing time lapse photography contrasting static image with the moving world with an emphasis on site-specific work.
Bi Rongrong has held residencies in France and The Netherlands and has displayed exhibits in each of these countries as well as numerous exhibitions in China, both as a solo artist and a collaborative artist. She graduated as a major of Chinese Painting at the College of Fine Arts of Southwest China with a Bachelor’s Degree in Literature, following which she undertook a Master’s Degree in Fine Arts at the Art College of Sichuan University, majoring in Chinese Landscape Painting. After this she undertook an exchange programme at the University of Pennsylvania as a part of her second Master’s Degree in Fine Arts at the Frank Mohr Institute in the Netherlands.
The Centre for Chinese Contemporary Art (CFCCA) is located at Market Buildings, Thomas Street, Northern Quarter, Manchester, M4 1EU.
