Borderless by Lêna Bùi
HỒ CHÍ MINH CITY, VIỆT NAM | February 2015 – June 2016
Borderless takes its inspiration from “đồ bộ”, a pyjama-like outfit most Vietnamese women own and wear daily, and its ability to transform private into public, interior into exterior. Far from being clothes to sleep in, these women wear these clothes due to the ease at which they could run back and forth between domestic work and work outside of the house. By using the most commonly used fabric for đồ bộ, transforming the cheap and widely available but almost ignored material and reframing its presence, Lêna Bùi examines space, class and local people’s resourcefulness in the usage of space.
