The Hiking Trail of Arts from the top station of the Asitz lift to the mid station of the Asitz lift is dedicated to a different theme each year.
The Hiking Trail of Arts will be on display from 16.06.2024 to around 20.10.2024. The trail can still be used depending on the weather and snow conditions.
Take the Asitz- or the Steinberg lift to the top station of the Asitz at 1,760m. The wonderful Hiking Trail of Arts starts below the top station of the Asitz lift and leads hikers all the way down to the mid station of the Asitz lift. On their way, they pass the "Peaceful Waters" and the Senses Park.
Every 30 to 40 m along the trail hikers find pictures of the current year's exhibitor, this year it is Toni Niederwieser, inviting you to take a closer look and make a litte pause.
Where does photography begin, and where does it end?
It’s a question that’s difficult to answer when one looks at Toni Niederwieser's photographs.
Yes, it's all about the moment when light, mood, season and also the chosen image have to come together perfectly and harmonise.
Once a motif has been photographed, a new phase begins for the photographer.
What does the motif tell us apart from the first impression it gives? What remains that needs to be brought out or concealed?
This is when experimentation in photography begins, whether it be through the use of filters, colour processing or working with brushes, acrylics, chalk or ink. Toni Niederwieser carries this out purposefully and meticulously. His vision mixes reality with impression, with chance also playing a part.
The photographer becomes an artist.
After analogue processing of the print, a process begins. The artist goes more or less into isolation with the picture, lets his imagination run wild, and ultimately paves the way for a new perspective for the viewer.
Playing with the mountains, with nature, with water, flowing or frozen, playing with colours, sharpening and blurring are characteristics that crop up throughout the exhibition, and which we cordially invite you to discover. Step by step, along the path.
The artworks will be on display from mid of June until mid of October. Each year the trail is dedicated to a new theme. Local and international artisits have the opportunity to exhibit their works along the way.
