Patricia Parinejad celebrates Oscar Niemeyer



Mac Niterói


Persian-German photographer Patricia Parinejad spent five years devoting her time and attention to the works of Oscar Niemeyer.
This exhibition presents a selection of these pictures taken in different parts of the world, giving us a broad sense of the notion of architecture and its capacity to generate harmonious living by means of inventing new spaces.

These are objects that inhabit our day-to-day lives and are inscribed in our sentimental memory of places. It can be noted, therefore, that Parinejad invites us to perceive the human (and humanist) character of the architecture, from her attention to certain details - marked by the passing of time acting on the buildings - to the small revealing scenes of intimacy shared between ordinary people and the constructions.
In short, there is an emotive architecture.

On the other hand, by striving to frame the images in an unusual manner she stimulates the viewer to rediscover not only the buildings, but also, as a result of such details, the subtleties in Niemeyer's creative genius. The desire for an encounter, not by chance the word chose by the artist to name the exhibition, translates precisely that special moment of seeing, seeing again, celebrating and being together with what touches us. What could be more precise to describe the pleasure afforded by this combination of a sensitive eye and striking architecture?

patricica recently returned from an extended photojourney in brazil about oscar niemeyer's architectural work for her upcoming book.

Patricia Parinejad"i am developing an open and fresh floading feminine dialogue in my photographic approach: conceptual - free - sensual and human - investigating form and space in details, contexts reinforcing his own vision and paying hommage to this great central figure of brazilian architectural modernism and the people of his country."

highly commited to the environment her artistic body of work - 'GREEN ART' features 

images of nature using 100% recycled material in printing and framing.

patricia's approach to photography is immediate, direct.

having lived and travelled in all continents her photographs feature the blurring bounderies between art, architecture and design,in capturing experimental travel images, abstract cityscapes..
she has created art that envelops architecture instead of the other way round. patricia understands the value of tradition as well as the importance of pushing contemporary concepts and challenges the interplay between the two.

"our way of living today is ..
expanded, fragmented, kaleidoscopic, infinite..."
