Metamorphosis. Brazil 1998
By Andrea Altemüller
The exhibition “Metamorphosis. Brazil 1998” in the Weltmuseum Wien is the first time the series of photos “earth from my river” and “Rainforest deforestation” by the photographer Andrea Altemüller are shown side by side. It opens a reflexive space of thought in which creative and destructive forces of mankind meets.
The series “Earth from my river” describes in a poetic way the work of the ceramic artist Izer Campos and the mystical world of the Amazonas and the people living there.
The series “rainforest deforestation” documents this subject and the situation of the charcoal workers in Paragominas, Brazil 1998. Sadly, this subject is much more relevant today. President Jair Bolsanaro‘s controversial environmental policy poses a massive threat to the fragile balance of the rainforest as well as the survival of the indigenous population.
Andrea Altemüller was born in Stuttgart and studied photography and graphic design at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna. Her works can be found in renowned collections such as the Staatsgalerie Stuttgart, the Daimler Art Collection , the Banco Espirito Santo Collection in Portugal, Eric Franck Fine Art in London and the Bibliothèque National in Paris. Andrea Altemüller currently lives in Vienna and works on her photographic projects all over the world.
