„The alpine space is a topography, where society manifests itself exemplarily in the many varieties of our consumer world.“ – Walter Niedermayr

The alterations of the alpine landscape through the presence of man represents a constant in Walter Niedermayr's artistic oeuvre. The ideal of a mountain scenery in its natural state is invalidated in his work, the effects of tourism on the mountain world become the image's content.

The video work "The Replicants" (2009) shown at EIKON SchAUfenster deals with the alpine landscape as a "sports equipment": on an (at first) empty ski slope, a spate of skiers descend the mountain. Their downward movements linger like dark traces on the snow white track until the stream of people dries up. The track seems to pause shortly, then the ski run starts again.

The video was made in 2007 on the occasion of the annual final ski race "Der weisse Rausch" on the Arlberg.

Walter Niedermayr (*1952, Bozen) lebt und arbeitet in Bozen.
