About

Surreal and ultra-sensory, The Secret Garden by Swedish artists Nathalie Djurberg and Hans Berg opens up a netherworld of strange delights and encounters.

In this immersive landscape, sculpture, light, sound and film combine to dazzling effect, as gallery visitors are thrust into a mysterious world of feverish dreams, psychedelic sunsets and expanding universes.

This is a secret garden fit for Alice in Wonderland, filled with giant leaves, bluebells and golden-capped acorns, gelato coloured cushions and dripping icecreams. A shaman rabbit presides over a playground of the subconscious that can only be fully activated by each audience member’s internal direction.

The Secret Garden exhibition also features a survey of the savagely humorous claymation films that first brought Djurberg and Berg into the international spotlight.
