Haining Wang is an artist born in the U.S. and raised in China. She received a B.A. from Yale University in Ethics, Politics, and Economics and is pursuing an MA at the Royal College of Art in Contemporary Art Practice. She previously worked in investment banking at Morgan Stanley and private equity investing at Temasek International in Hong Kong and Beijing.
Departing from her experience in the finance industry, Haining’s work considers the politics of corporate life and social hierarchy in the context of global capitalism. Lately, she is working with silicone to create glove-like casts of the outer surfaces of cosmetic products, exploring notions of loss, preservation, and consumerist desire.
