Description

Since the 80s Walter Niedermayr has been investigating the relationship between man and mountain environment, as well as the huge modification of the territory due to the growing phenomenon of mass tourism and its effects, evident both in terms of human presence and infrastructure building. Apparently spectacular, these works create in the viewer a sort of disorientation, leading to questions about the landscape perception and the effects of the human action on natural setting. In his series about Iran, Niedermayr sought to bring into focus the history of an advanced culture along with the current state of this fascinating country. How is a 5,000-years-old cultural history expressed in the present? In his serial works, he investigates the Iranian landscape developed since Islamic revolution of 1979 strongly characterized by Western influence and its relationship with the cultural sites and architecture of ancient Persia, pointing out possible connections between past and present.show more
