I attended the exhibition, titled "The Whiteness of a Whale by Zhao Renhui & Satoshi Kataoka" at the Jendela gallery at The Esplanade a few days back. The artist, Zhao Renhui, also known as Robert Zhao, was the UOB Painting Of The Year winner in 2009.
This exhibition titled "The Whiteness Of A Whale" is his first solo
after his 1 year art residency in Japan after winning the 2009 UOB Painting of the Year award for his controversial photographs. The exhibition is a collection of his photography and archival works from the Institute of Critical Zoologist about a rare white whale which have been sighted numerous times between 1982 – 2008 around the Pacific Ocean and the Sea of Japan.
