In The Night Garden



White Nights Melbourne

Artist Statement


Discover The Night Garden – an enchanted garden that only grows at night, when dreamers dream, and when imagination transcends the walls of reason. The Night Garden grows out of a powerful dream vision inspired by the influential medieval poem The Romance of the Rose, by Guillaume de Lorris. Gardens are places of rest, artistry and magic. Dreams are places where the commonplace becomes extraordinary. Inviting the dreamer in us all, The Night Garden will be a place of repose and wonder in the eye of the storm of experience that is White Night.
