Lot Essay

Zhao Renhui is one of Singapore's most promising young contemporary artist working primarily with photography but often in a multi-disciplinary way by combining images with videos, documents and objects. Working in association with a self-created research institute, The Institute of Critical Zoologists (ICZ), his works have been described as testing the "principles behind the dissemination of knowledge and acceptance of truths". Zhao adopts the persona of a zoologist and anthropologist investigating species in their natural - or unnatural - habitats. The Glacier Study Group series is based on a fictional research group purportedly initiated by ICZ to study the effect of impact of global warming on the Arctic environment.
