A collaboration between dancer Maud Karlsson and sculptor Henny Linn Kjellberg 2005, resulted in 70  porcelain butterflies and the performance In Rapture.

The project ended but the butterflies continue their symbolic transformation.

24 artists were invited to recreate one or more butterflies in their own unique way. The new creations are auctioned out to the highest bidding May 25.
