Ritual Paper Lanterns

As a child, Jayanto would sit and watch his beautiful Peranakan mother delicately fold papers into Yuanbao Lanterns for his Taoism father. These lanterns imitate the gold ingot currency of Imperial China and announced good luck. In Ritual Looking For The Enlightenment, Jayanto recreates these lanterns to express personal experiences of ‘otherness’.
