ZHONGHUA SUI: notReadymade

The notReadymade documents the cradle-to-grave life cycle of a group of commodities to make a gentle disruption to the system. The truth is portrayed through a performance of multiple depositions, by duplicating the external form of a ready-made product.

The aim is to visualize the hundreds of production relationships that are hidden by the “simple act of payment.” The aim is to visualize the invisible violence of “industrial manufactured demand” and its attendant modernity at large.

You will find them on display in retail shops. A bizarre piece hiding among other items, reproduced by real workers, which record the labour process with the fingerprints left behind. It once paled in the midst of promotional crowds, while still walking gently into the good night with drunken gourmets in the heart of the metropolis. Birthplace is a far cry from urgency.

“These violent delights have violent ends.” The garments from the installation make their final deposition to life in the rubbish collection, as white and clean as the primordial state of everything. Erased from workers and consumers, its life will continue forever in the toxic and beautiful cycle of commercialization.

Fashion is performed on time, when the means designed to achieve an end become the end itself, the possibility of achieving the end is cancelled. Things without a price are perhaps more significant than readymade products. Doing something notReadymade offers the best moments, as people can then participate in fashion as a creator instead of being defined by the demands created by system and thus go against alienation and personally enjoy both fashion and life.

— Trading based on the division of labour breaks away from its fundamental principles. All transactions are based on a unified abstract number and people live numbered lives.
Piece rate wage: one dimensional man
Piece rate wage: one dimensional man — Focused mainly on the culture of overwork in Asia, a debate ensued in which anti-capitalist tirades went viral, but these were more like funny memes and nostalgia than calls to action. When the discussion became blurred, it was no longer easy to distinguish emotions and consciousness, so the inevitable form of capital develops in which everyone is inserted into a system from which it is difficult to withdraw and obscures identifying attributes.

— The value of commodities is reflected in the human relationship, once you engage in consumption, you are invisibly involved in hundreds of relationships, from shop assistants, delivery people, to farmers who grow cotton. However, for consumers, all of these people’s participation is just covered in the extremely simple act of payment,which is also covered by the external form of commodities.

— For the second return, make it into a rail installation to send it around prosperous metropolitan places where it can have the most brilliant moment of its life stage as a commodity.
The buckle in the Room
The buckle in the Room — This leads to a value system and mental state oriented by the exchange value in which people are covered invisible. The distance becomes extremely far and as a result, participation in violence becomes possible and people will continue to turn a blind eye.

Does location defines authenticity — You will see the audience dancing in front of the installation but this is just to visualise the consumption lifestyle of us all without realisation. We do not care about ethical living or who made those products.

Many stories happen silently to fill up this uncertainty due to the time difference between products and the separation of consumption from demand. After capital enables production of commodities, new forms of existence are created and commodities are displayed on shelves peacefully and flowing slowly as the shelves are pushed through all scenes in the commercial street, which is visible. The loop of invisible capital to capital flows to meet the expected demand.

Therefore, larger loops will last forever and will have to gain attention in crowded shopping malls to attract new eyes. In the new area, a new group of people will be transformed into laborers and new labour surplus value will be generated to fill this vicious circle of overproduction and expected sales.
