[One Brown Box (2010)]


Reviews & Comments:

  1. Graeme Beattie, "One Brown Box: A Storybook Exhibition for Children,” by Bronwyn Lloyd and Karl Chitham. Beattie's Book Blog (November 3, 2010):

    In this exhibition, designed primarily for children, Bronwyn Lloyd and Karl Chitham treat the humble brown box as a plain structure with unlimited imaginative potential while at the same time bringing together two of their primary enthusiasms: making up stories and making objects from paper and cardboard.

    One Brown Box is made up of adaptations of five classic children’s stories including The Princess and the Pea, The Twelve Dancing Princesses, and Hansel and Gretel, each told from the perspective of overlooked, minor and absent characters from the original tales, illustrated with large and small models made entirely from boxes and paper.

  2. "One Brown Box: A Storybook Exhibition for Children,” by Bronwyn Lloyd and Karl Chitham. The Big Idea (November 23, 2010):

    The exhibition of adapted tales is supplemented by a huge ‘I Spy’ game with objects galore and a display of folktales and fairytales from the collection of writer and bibliophile, Jack Ross, who has compiled a short history of the fairytale genre detailing the fascinating origins of these stories that are now so familiar to us.

  3. Matt Blomeley, "Objective lessons: A Review of the 2010 Objectspace Programme. Objectspace (December 16, 2010):

    One Brown Box: a storybook exhibition for children was a unique and charming exhibition that closed out the 2010 calendar, centred on fairy tales and the creative possibilities inherent within the humble and ubiquitous brown cardboard box.
