Somewhere beyond right and wrong there is a garden. I will meet you there. – Rumi

Hird, a painter, stage designer and award-winning filmmaker uses the mythical garden as a metaphor to explore how we perceive truth. Narratives favorites familiar from her childhood, such as Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Caroll and The Secret Garden byFrances Hodgson Burnett – among others – are re-imagined for our present day in large-scale paintings, interactive shadowbox gardens and animated videos. Seductively, charmingly, she challenges the viewer to choose whether or not to believe.
