Wang Ruobing


Dr Wang Ruobing (b. 1975, Chengdu, China) is an artist, independent curator and art educator based in Singapore. She graduated from Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts in 1997. Following that, she went on to study at LASALLE College of the Arts (1997-1998), the University of London (2001-2002), and received her Doctorate degree in Philosophy in Fine Art from Oxford University in 2010, on the Ruskin Scholarship and Lamb and Flag scholarship of Oxford University.

Wang works as a lecturer at LASALLE College of the Arts and is the co-founder of Comma Space 逗号空间: an artist-run experimental art space that creates thinking spaces between commas. As an independent curator, her recent curated exhibitions include 12 SOLO (2020 -2021); Arts in Your Neighbourhood (Public Art Trust 2018 and 2019); Happens When Nothing Happens (The Esplanade, 2019); Of Other Places (The Substation, 2019); and Beneath Tide, Running Forest (Singapore Botanic Gardens, 2018). 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.
