介紹 DESCRIPTION //
All items from the artist’s wardrobe are reinserted into market circulation by means of a mail-order magazine. Product placement, styling and the language of fashion turn history, memory and wear back towards the anonymity of manufacturing processes and design detail.
Items were sold and/or given away to customers on the same terms they were originally acquired, and participants were asked to photograph themselves with their new purchase.

Elaine W. HO works between the realms of time‐based art, urban practice and design, using multiple vocabularies to explore the micropolitics, subjectivities and alter-possibilities of an intimate, networked production.
The act of describing takes on a number of forms—a kind of grammar, a documentation, a gesture, a biography—or an experiment in Beijing known as HomeShop. She is the initiator of the artist-run space, active from 2008-2013, and continues to ask questions about the sociopolitics of syntax, more recently via print, pirate broadcast and as co-conspirator with Display Distribute, a networked research platform investigating bottom-up organisation amidst global trade (2015-ongoing).
She likes to drink coffee and tea mixed together and is a frequent contributor at www.iwishicoulddescribeittoyoubetter.net.
