Kirsty Mitchell

Wonderland

13 September — 24 November, 2019

The story of Kirsty Mitchell and her Wonderland project is much like a fairy tale. A multifaceted fairy tale in many respects.

The exhibition is Mitchell’s five-year-long project that started in the Summer of 2009 – a few months after her mother’s tragic death due to cancer. It became the photographer’s way of escaping the harsh reality to her childhood’s fairy tale world. Characters from the artist’s imagination got to roam freely in front of the camera in a forest that was near her home. It is a story about overcoming a very deep grief.

“We went to the forest as planned, because it always felt as if mother had been with us. This meant that regardless of the weather, the snow storms and defying the rainfall we let happen what was supposed to happen. I felt that my photo project just had to be done. It was like escaping in the middle of the day to a place that felt deeply meaningful to me.” Kirsty Mitchell
