Jayanto has created installations with folded paper lanterns and lead workshops in their making in the past few years. To expand the project, he has made a colourful lantern for Ritual Looking For The Enlightenment’s performance, which he has asked people to hold the lantern while standing still. They have been photographed from behind as a silent figure in a silent landscape as an offering to the individuality of enlightenment. These performance “pilgrim – from Indonesia, Australia to Germany” lantern photographs celebrate the diversity of our living society and repetitious practice of prayer.
