Under the organisational name of The Institute of Critical Zoologists, artist Robert Zhao Renhui is a multidisciplinary Singaporean artist. As an artist and almost zoologist, his practice investigates the different modes of the human zoological gaze, that is, how people view animals. Zhao has shown in a number of international exhibitions and been the subject of extensive writing and commentary. Zhao graduated with a Masters in Photography from The London College of Communication under its graduate scholarship program.

The Institute for Critical Zoologists aims to develop a critical approach to the zoological gaze, or how humans view animals. Urban societies live in relative isolation from animals; however, our demand and gaze upon them have grown significantly over the last century. It is undeniable that looking at animals is considered both desirable and pleasurable in societies. Animals convey meaning and values that are culture-specific, and in viewing the animal, we cannot escape the cultural context, political climate and social values in which that observation takes place.
