“For a long time, I have entertained myself by creating visual pattern motifs constructed from details from random snapshots that I have taken. Not knowing in advance what possibilities lie in the limitations of using random snapshots can give me pleasant surprises along the way and inspire my own work process. By using snapshots as a starting point for the creative process, the image motifs also get an authentic, undirected and rough feel, which in this context is considered an aesthetic quality.”

“It was summer. Every day I walked on the beach and passed the same bush with white flowers. The flowers were growing out and became more beautiful every day. I thought I one day would photograph them, but I didn’t. One day a hurricane came and destroyed the bush so violently that only a few broken remains remained of what had been beautiful flowers. Then I took my picture. I went home and constructed a new floral motif – or it constructed itself. Based on my random snapshot, the broken flower has resurrected and created itself in a new version. By interweaving itself into its own network it has both become stronger and tied a new bond with itself. And it is still beautiful, but now in a different way.”

    SEEING FOREST: SINGAPORE PAVILION AT…

    Art | May 17, 2024

    As visitors enter Seeing Forest, they step into a mysterious, forested zone that exists both in the imagination and in Singapore. In this in-between space called the secondary forest - a threshold between old-growth or primary forest and developed areas, between urban and wild, invention and reality - artist Robert Zhao Renhui invites us to consider a complex web of human and non-human co-existence. Seeing Forest encourages visitors to explore the ways in which urban design can shape the natural world, and vice versa, resulting in a new ecosystem of migrant species that echoes the histories, trajectories and makeup of a city’s human population.
