Activities during the residency

Since 2017, the artist has carried out the project, The Others, in various places in East Asia. The artist interviews the migrants or the people with a sense of alienation, invites them to write about their personal story, and turns it into a mural. During his stay in Fukuoka, Candy Bird found a local collaborator through an open-call, and they communicated through interviews and email correspondences. In the end, the artist completed a series of murals based on the stories written by the collaborator.
