Heliotrope Print

Through the activation of public spaces around the world, Taiwanese-American artist Candy Chang provokes playful and profound visions for how we can connect, reflect, and cultivate the health of our communities. For over a decade she has created participatory experiments in the public realm that examine the thresholds between isolation and community, the psychology of civic engagement, and how shared places can cultivate introspection, intimacy, and kinship. Her work examines issues from criminal justice and the future of vacant buildings to personal aspirations and anxieties. Projects include a vacant high-rise pleading for love, a confessional sanctuary on the Las Vegas strip, a site-specific fable in an apartment complex, and a public wall about death and aspirations. Her participatory public art project Before I Die has been created in over 1,000 cities and over 70 countries, including Iraq, China, Haiti, Kazakhstan, and South Africa.
