about:

Ruohong Wu (1985, China) is working as artist, architect and publisher. She is originally educated as architect at Architectural Association London. Since 2012 she starts to practice parallelly as artist. Her current artistic work often deals with the topic called “cultural gap”, which focuses on the sudden jump from sophisticated classic craftsmanship into mass-produced duplicates so-called “made in China”. She attempts to provide another aspect to treat the relationship between industrial and craft methods, not as contradictions, but possibilities to transfer cultural conflict into new aesthetic values. Her major work is in the form of porcelain and textile. Her work has been exhibited internationally such as Somerset House London(2018), Milan design week (2015, 2017), Antwerp art weekends (2016,2017), Madrid city hall(2016-17), JustMad art fair Madrid (2015), and widely published in New York Times, El Croquis (CN edition), Milk, Cover magazine. Etc She has been teaching and lecturing at Architectural Association School London, Shanghai JiaoTong University, China Academy of Art, Universidad Europea de Madrid and IED Istituto Europeo di Design Madrid.
