12 Exaltations of Elizabeth

‘12 Exaltations of Elizabeth (Diary of a pregnant pensioner)’ is a sculptural handmade book. It is a humourous account reading between the lines of the Gospels of Luke and John concerning Elizabeth’s pregnancy with John the Baptist. It plays on Elizabeth’s inner thoughts giving the story a modern narrative whilst considering the dilemma of being pregnant in later life and a miraculous birth. It attempts to open up the viewers thoughts and reflections concerning  the story.
