Born in 1982 in Ningbo and now living and working in Shanghai, Bi Rongrong has collected ornamental patterns of architectures in the cities where she visited and has applied them to textiles, paintings, animations and immersive installations. In her works, the applied patterns lose the original context and appear as pure abstract forms. In doing so, Bi transforms the space into pictorial landscape.
After completing an MA in Chinese Traditional Landscape Painting at Sichuan University, she studied for an MA at the Painting Department of the Frank Mohr Institute in the Netherlands. Her recent solo exhibitions include Wave at Shanghai Museum of Glass, China (2017); Pattern XI-∞ at A Thousand Plateaus Art Space in Chengdu, China (2019) and she has also participated in public art projects in and outside China.
