Kindertotenlieder at Howard Assembly Room

Thu, 20th Jan, 2011

The Howard Assembly Room, Leeds presents Mariele Neudecker’s installation Kindertotenlieder from Friday 28 January to Wednesday 23 February 2011.

Evoking the beauty and sadness of Mahler’s Kindertotenlieder (Songs on the Death of Children) German-born artist Mariele Neudecker uses film, sculpture and archive song recordings in this walk-through exhibition. Neudecker, currently shortlisted as an artist for the Fourth Plinth in London’s Trafalgar Square, recreates and regenerates her commission from 2005, in this the Centenary Year of Mahler’s death.

“It is hard to think of another contemporary artist able to give form, and, I think consolation, to such agonizing grief. Neudecker shows herself as remarkably gifted with film as she is with sculpture… I can’t think why she never wins the Turner Prize.” The Observer

Kindertotenlieder at the Howard Assembly Room Monday to Saturday 2.00pm to 8.00pm. Enter via Leeds Grand Theatre, Free Entry.

Commissioned by Opera North Projects and Picture This in partnership with Impressions Gallery.
