Origami butterflies. A thousand of them. And we’re going to make them all! Eva Wong and Naoko Fukumaru will lead a series of in-person Origami workshops with the goal of making one thousand butterflies for their exhibition, Mass Reincarnation of Wish Fragments, opening Oct 28 at SUM gallery. Guests are also invited to write down their wishes, which will be folded into each Origami butterfly.

Can’t make one of the three scheduled workshops? Eva Wong invites drop-ins at SUM gallery, Tue to Sat, between noon and 5:30pm, beginning Oct 14. Not in Vancouver? You’re also welcome to mail your butterflies and wishes to us! Not handy with Origami, but still want to be involved? We’ll accept just your written wishes, either in person, by mail, or submitted online here—they will be added to a butterfly and will be part of the final installation.

We would like to collect as many wishes as possible by Oct 12.
All Origami butterflies must be received by Oct 26.
Origami butterflies and wishes may be dropped off at or mailed to: SUM gallery, 268 Keefer St #425, Vancouver, BC V6A 1X5.
