A group of Iranian environmental artists have participated in the 2015 edition of Geumgang Nature Art Pre-Biennale in South Korea.
Twelve Iranian artists, including Asieh Mohammadian, Atefeh Khas, Faezeh Qaemimanesh, Farzaneh Najafi, Fereshteh Alamshah, Karim Allahkhani and Mahdieh Dehqan, have presented their photographs and installations at the event.
Veteran Iranian environmental artist Ahmad Nadalian hailed the group’s efforts and achievements, saying their active participation in the South Korean event shows that Iranian artists have taken a leap forward in the artistic category.
“The diverse natural landscape of Iran has attracted the new generation to environmental art, and a large number of Iranian artists have so far joined the global environmental art arena,” Nadalian added.
Geumgang Nature Art Pre-Biennale 2015 is held as a promotion of the annual Geumgang Nature Art Biennale. It aims to provide young artists with a platform to present their works and get more familiar with artists of other countries.
This year’s pre-biennale will run until late November, showcasing photographs, videos and installations by artists of 35 countries, including Peru, the US, Hungary, Germany, India and Japan.
The Geumgang Nature Art Biennale has turned into the biggest nature art-related event in the world, which introduces environmental art to the audience and contributes to its promotion worldwide.
