Mariele Neudecker’s piece of work (Winterreise, 2003) is a collaboration with Opera North where Schubert’s song cycle ‘WINTERREISE’ (A WINTER’S JOURNEY) has been used as a basis for a film-project using locations along the 60th parallel north. It is a compilation of 24 short films that exists both as a live performance version and in this context as a gallery version (duration 90’50”). It has been performed live at venues such as the Shaw Room, National Gallery, Dublin; Baltic, Newcastle and the Linbury Studio, Royal Opera House, London.
The gallery version was, most recently, included in INTIMACY, at the Australian Centre for Contemporary Art, Melbourne.
