In the Window – December – Elizabeth Willow

Admission Free
Start Time 00:00
End Time 00:00

Wait and See is a collection of twenty-four shadow-boxes, one to be opened on each of the days of Advent, from the first of December until Christmas Eve.

Each box is unique, and is made using collage, printmaking and bookbinding techniques, with layers of opaque and translucent paper creating three-dimensional scenes.  The boxes can be lit from the front or from behind, creating a play of light and shadow.

As well as for Advent Elizabeth’s boxes could be given to mark a special or memorable date such as a birthday or anniversary as each one has a number on the front which is lifted to reveal each magical scene she has created.

The boxes are inspired by Victorian toy theatres, Eastern European animation, and fairy tales, and by my own memories of making Advent calendars as a child. And I wanted to make a thing of delight to brighten dark days, to make something glad.
