About

Zavier Wong Zhen Rui is a Singapore born maker and thinker based in the Netherlands. The primary role of his practice uses the act of making and creating to understand the human experience and to discover new ways of seeing he achieves this by playing with materials and discovering new ways of working with it. He allows that which is unknown and uncertain to guide him. In that process he negotiates with the material to unravel its qualities. While also reflecting on the qualities it presents in relation to our environment, he responds by giving it form so that it creates resonance with people. The results are always one where both material and immaterial dimensions are held together.
He likes to see himself as someone gardening an industrial wilderness. Interior objects has been his medium. It has led him to tinker with a range of mediums and materials he tend to gravitate towards materials that are seen as imperfect, discarded, unwanted or things that are rejected by industry or seen as useless. Using its perceived weakness as an invitation to transform it.
