This is the catalogue of Ma Liuming's exhibition at Chinese Contemporary, London in 2003. Ma is known for his female personage, Fen-Ma Liuming. "With his long hair, feminine makeup and naked body, Ma's appearance on stage is a straightforward representation of transgender. Ma could be androgynous in the sense that the two genders coexist. However, Ma is not the final product of gender trasfer, but continues to hover between the two genders." - excerpt from essay by Yuko Hasegawa. The catalogue features photographs of Ma's performances in various cities around the world, and his paintings of female faces with infantile bodies. With artist biography.
