Hannah Fox and Cardboard Box Company

Based in Accrington, The Cardboard Box Company joins ‘The Art In Manufacturing’ for a second year, bringing the capacity to design, print and manufacture cardboard boxes to their collaboration with Cumbria-based, community-focused artist, Hannah Fox. Embracing cardboard’s innate versatility and constructional value and methods, Fox looks into Blackburn’s past as home to no fewer than 15 cinemas to recall a valuable, shared social history at risk of being forgotten. Renowned for playful and impactful audience experiences, Fox’s practice encompasses animation, large-scale installation and detailed paper sculpture, elements planned to come together in combination as Fox and The Cardboard Company strive to create a walk-in, cinematic experience in Blackburn town centre.
