Lives and Works: Singapore
Ren Zi focuses on the role memory plays in our sense of identity & the world. This comes from having majored in psychology & the sense of loss growing up in a country whose past has all but been erased. Far from nostalgic, his works seem more like open-ended stories. They juxtapose scenes & figures from personal memory, history & mythology as invitation to weave your own connections/conclusions. His "7 elements" series, presented here & in his first solo show early 2013, draws upon the metaphorical elements that make up his personal cosmology to depict the transformational nature of memories.Returning to art after having spent his working life in the business of words, Ren Zi channels the mutative influences of popular culture, science & the multi-cultural strains that sift through the consciousness of his country.
