Mass Reincarnation of Wish Fragments 願片大量転生 (Ganhen Tairyou Tensei)

Presented By: Queer Arts Festival

Eva Wong and Naoko Fukumaru’s collaboration brings together the traditional Japanese practices of Origami and Kintsugi to tell a tale of queer transformation. This exhibit will showcase 1000 Origami butterflies, made by community members from our Butterfly Workshops, bursting out of a Kintsugi cocoon. The written wishes of our workshop participants will be hidden within the folds of each butterfly, carried away to be answered by the gods. Kintsugi, long considered a metaphor for the embracing of one’s imperfections, is the art of repairing broken pottery by mending the cracks with gold; paired with the butterfly’s story of transformation, Mass Reincarnation of Wish Fragments reflects themes that are common in 2SLGBTQ+ culture, especially the transgender experience.
