This monograph, co-published by Gallery EXIT and MCCM Creations, offers a comprehensive overview of Ivy Ma's diverse practice from 2000 to 2012. It begins with her early installations and mixed-media works, and moves on to selected photographic works and drawings since the mid-2000s, as well as video animations such as The Room Is Not Still (2010) and Breeze (2011), culminating in the artist's most recent works including Numbers Standing Still (2012) and Nine Pairs of Shoes (2012). Also featured are examples from her renowned practice of 'drawing-interventions,' ranging from the Moments series (2010), to Yasujiro Ozu | Tokyo Story | Flower and Plant series (2010) and Lily series (2011). Sections devoted to particular areas of the artist's oeuvre provide an illustrated chronology of the period and essays by scholar, artists and critics, as well as poems by Chen Fongfong, Chan Ning, Matthew Cheng, Jennifer Wong, Stella Tse and Arthur Leung. Includes a dialogue between the artist and Blues Wong, and artist biography.
