This Saturday I start invigilating in Opera North’s Howard Assembly Room for Mariele Neudecker’s installation. Her work is inspired by Gustav Mahler’s song cycle, Kindertotenlieder, (The Death of Children) which in turn was originally inspired by over 400 poems written by german poet Friedrich Rückert after his two children Ernst and Luise died of scarlett fever in 1833. The Poems were never intended for publication.
I am going to try and get some more illustration done.
Here’s one I did last week. I am majorly our of practice.
Today I started work on some fabric Valentine’s Day Cards which will feature embroidery on the front and a booklet of tracing paper pages inside for people to write on. Gross.
I will be finishing these off during invigilation at theartmarket this Wednesday as there is currently an exhibition of Ross Downes / Rory Macbeth’s work titled ‘DISPLAY COPY’
This Saturday a group of us will be venturing to Marsden for Imbolc Fire Festival!
