About the event

LAUNCH Gallery proudly presents BEYOND, a new immersive installation by Flora Kao AB '00 exploring the mesmerizing beauty of Taiwanese lotus offerings. In Taiwan’s Buddhist tradition, grieving family members fold 108 origami lotus each week for seven weeks. Each week, 108 handmade blossoms are ceremonially burned until the lotus covered-body is cremated on the forty ninth day. The ritual burning of origami lotus serves as a portal for the dead to the afterlife and for the mourning to solace.
