New

.November 2020: New copies available!.

Presentation of this zine by the artist:

« I often be asked how I get models, this book is about that. »

Signed in ink by the artist. Includes a tipped-in bookmark-format half-sheet with the text of a typical conversation with a person in the street, and the artist's stamp.

PLEASE NOTE:

 - This is handmade zine, with possible small imperfections related to the production process.

 - The previous publications by this artist are rather rare and expensive. This zine is announced as an open edition, meaning theoretically an unlimited printrun (or until the artist wishes to stop making them). After a first batch of copies made available during the summer of 2019, Ma Te sort of disappeared from all screens, but we were able to recently order additional copies as the artist "reappeared" with a new website.

 - The new copies are identical to the ones sold in 2019, this is the same edition.

48 pages - Softcover

Self-published, 2019 (open edition, not limited)

Format : 14 x 21 cm

MA TE

MA TE is a photographer who does not communicate much about her person, she is based in Beijing. The Chinese characters she uses to represent herself and that she calls CAI is « a symbol of destruction but also rebirth ». MA TE self-published in 2017 a zine and a book in limited editions, both handmade and both titled "City of Dust", then in 2018 a large Leporello book with a cement cover titled "The Concrete Dream", and a second zine "I Often Be Asked How I Get Models" in 2019. In 2021, a new handmade title is released: "Papersky", which is - like "City of Dust" - a book and a zine.

Some time ago I decided to rethink some of my projects and realize them in a new, more concentrated form of zines. In almost half a year I managed to implement this idea and today I am ready to...
