Title

Wang Ruobing

Description

During this residency, Wang Ruobing will expand her ongoing research into sustainability and livability issues brought about by threats to marine ecology, with artistic practice/expression as an avenue to reconfigure our relations to the earth and its inhabitants.

With rising water temperatures and expansion in size of the Tropical Warm Pool (the largest area of ocean on Earth), within which Singapore is situated, the marine coastline ecosystem has become a crucial field of research. Rapid demographic growth and concentrated economic activity, such as sea shipments, within the region has intensified the relationship between humans and marine life. Spurred by the region’s rapidly changing environmental, social, and political conditions, the artist intends to deepen her understanding of the effects of marine pollution on the coastline ecosystem through potential collaboration with scientific research centres. Drawing inspiration from Donna J. Haraway’s theories on the Cthulhuscene and ‘sympoiesis’, or “making-with”, she hopes to develop a body of new research and artworks that investigates and speculates ways of living with the damages caused by humankind, as a way of making sense of the present and discovering the means of building a more sustainable future.
