Don’t bluntly call it a “compilation of books” when standing in front of the zines present at the Show/Tell Pop-up Shop at Satellite Gallery, for this is more than a series of “texts-on-paper.” Imagine it to be a graffiti art form, a mural or even a performance piece, guiding the passersby (readers) into a surreal space of creativity.

For your trip to Satellite, please bring a sense of wonder and imagination to encounter the zines!
