Cristina De Middel



Born in Alicante in 1975, Cristina De Middel studied Fine Arts in Valence and photography in Barcelona and Oklahoma City. Following a trip to China, the Spanish artist proposes a reinterpretation of Quotations from Chairman Mao Tse-tung –or the second top selling book after the Bible. In Party, her revised edition resembling a facsimile, De Middel censored some of the original phrases with Tipp-Ex, leaving a succession of words on each page forming an unexpected meaning. To accompany this personal and iconoclastic vision, on each page of the book she inserted a photograph that she has taken to reflect the new version of the text.
