Zhao Renhui (b.1983) is a multi-disciplinary Singapore artist. His practice investigates the different modes of the human zoological gaze, i.e., how people view animals. Renhui’s work is based on the concept of doubt and uncertainty and in his work, he tests to the limit the principles behind the dissemination of knowledge and acceptance of truths. A large part of his practice tries to resists the false naturalisation of beliefs and circumstances.
Renhui received his BA (Photography) from Camberwell College of Arts and his MA(Photography) from the University of the Arts London. He has had exhibitions at Singapore Art Museum; The Substation Gallery, Singapore; Fukuoka Asian Art Museum, Japan; Institute of Contemporary Art, Singapore; Chapter Gallery, Wales; Photo- Levallois Festival, Paris; GoEun Museum of Photography, Korea; The Zabludowicz Collection, London; P.P.O.W Gallery, New York and Shanghart, Shanghai. Renhui is the recipient of the 2011 Deutsche Bank Award in Photography (London) and The United Overseas Bank Painting of the Year Award (2009). In 2010, he was awarded The Young Artist Award by the Singapore National Arts Council.
