This is a sneak-peak-foreshadowing-harbinger kind of thing of some up and coming plans at HomeShop, tied in ever so subtly to this year’s 有种 BALLSY series. We have actually been a bit more subtle-quiet-uneventful than in previous series, but mind you this may also have to do with some deep internalisation that any real ballsy-ness requires. I―ahem, E.S.!―would like to understand BALLSY with reference to that constant movement, perhaps of the sort that Agamben speaks about, always in relation to lack, but not necessarily productivity (relief in new one-liners: A Designer Who Does Not Produce). There is a movement whereby “that which if it is, is as if it wasn’t, it lacks itself (manca a se stesso), and if it isn’t, is as if it was, it exceeds itself.”
You may have no clue what we’re getting at here, but little monkey let’s just leave it at that for now. If you would like more information or the recipe for 吴以楠 WU Yinan‘s beauty balls, just leave a comment to this post.
