Eva Wong and Naoko Fukumaru’s collaboration brings together the traditional Japanese practices of Origami. This collaboration tells a tale of queer transformation in this unique art exhibition.
This art exhibition will showcase 1000 Origami butterflies, made by community members from our Butterfly Workshops. Witness as it bursts out of a Kintsugi cocoon. The written wishes of our art exhibition workshop participants will be hidden within the folds of each butterfly. Each wish will be 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, this art exhibition reflects themes that are common in 2SLGBTQ+ culture, especially the transgender experience.
The gallery will be open 12-6pm, Tue – Sat.
