RongRong was born in Fujian Province, China, in 1968. He was a key member of the Beijing East Village group, experimenting with photography and documenting the performances of his fellow artists in the early 1990s, which have attained an almost mythic status in the history of contemporary Chinese experimental art. In 2006 RongRong and his wife inri founded Three Shadows Photography Art Centre, emphasizing international collaborations and the creation of a sustainable infrastructure for young Chinese artists. His work has been exhibited worldwide over three decades, and is held in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, New York; the Getty Museum, Los Angeles; the Myriam and Guy Ullens Foundation, Beijing; the Mori Art Museum, Tokyo; and several distinguished private foundations.
