The Dada Record: Grace Tan

Photography: Ming

Hello! My name is Grace Tan and I am a clothing designer/artist. I started kwodrent in 2003 as a project to explore design in a new light. kwodrent is a progressive series of original works based on the study of rectangles, referenced to materials and construction methods. Each design/work in the collection is numbered and dated to form a chronological record of the development. kwodrent hopes to challenge how clothes are designed and perceived. For now, it has served as a starting point for exciting new discussions and collaborations.

Underground French music. It’s one of those early 80s beats. Something fun and synthetic.

Saku by Susumu Yokota
The song reminds me of working on one of those quiet and slow afternoons, totally immersed in my own world.

It Never Entered My Mind by Miles Davis
My all time favorite jazz track. Very emotive.

02/00 by B. Fleischmann
My favorite when I’m working. In fact, I like the entire ‘Welcome Tourist’ album very much. Again, one of those tracks which I play when I am working alone.

Revenge of the Flowers by Malcolm McLaren and Francoise Hardy
Very sensuous. Actually, it is a very sad song. Reminds me of the existential philosophy of the old Paris, all dressed in black.
