The work "My Bird Is Singing" is based on the artist's childhood memory. His family asked him when he was a child "is your bird singing?" means "are you getting an erection?"
Text on the drawing; "When I was a child, my family and relatives were asking me that "is your bird singing" in front of all people. First I didn't know what it meant. But they were pointing my small baby dick. I was too shy that I never answered the question. Finally, I can SAY YES, "My Bird is singing"
With this work, Kavachi invites the audience to face his childhood memory by opening the curtain, or they can close the curtain .
