Grayson Perry: Rites of Passage

Toraja, South Sulawesi

Grayson Perry explores the landmark events in all of our lives – birth, coming of age, marriage and death – and tries to reinvent them for our modern secular age. He’ll be travelling the world for inspiration, spending time with communities in the Amazon, Indonesia and Japan to see how they treat these great moments. Back home Grayson will collaborate with British families to devise ceremonies that will mark a genuine milestone in their lives. In Indonesia, Grayson visited Toraja in Sulawesi to explore more about the tradition of Manene.
