This post is part of the blog series by artist Lee Mingwei, whose art project The Travelers, a MOCA commission, is ongoing through September 12, 2011. In the project, Mingwei invites participants to write down their stories of “leaving home;” in this blog series, we turn to Mingwei and ask him to share his.

I am currently in Liverpool, doing The Mending project for Liverpool Biennale. It is really wonderful to be back in Liverpool, afer 4 years; the city has changed quite a bit, for the better. I truly enjoy walking daily to 52 Renshaw Street, an old Victorian arcade, to mend stranger’s clothing. The visitors are all very eager to participate in the process, by bringing me their cloth to mend.
