BOXES beyond borders

Throne for a Smart Princess

Sibylle Kretschmer
Germany 1999

the box is turned around
the helplessness of a woman is turned around.

a throne is created
creativity and self-confidence are experienced and rewarded.

Following the idea of Grimm’s fairy tale, the princess had only one chance to get her golden ball from the depth of the well: she had to promise to share her whole life with the helper, a frog. ¬†As a smart woman she does not want to accept this type of dependence and help and so she finds a new solution to solve the problem.
