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.
