It’s time to send warm greetings to a new artist at Copper Leg Art Residency. Meet Elvira Akzhigitova, photo artist who is living and working in Berlin, Germany but was born in Tallinn, Estonia.
Elvira is an experimenter who spends long hours in the darkroom with a red light, trying to capture there the trace of light and its tactile essentials. In addition to traditional analog photography tools and light sources, she also has another rather unusual tool called Violet Wand in her arsenal. By electrifying organic matter with this secret weapon, she succeeds in revealing what is otherwise invisible to the eye. According to the artist, she works on the edge of photography and painting, just where these two practices meet and blend.
So, if you now have a desire to stimulate your eyes and mind, to peek into hidden, light-sensitive and metaphysical reality! You are expected tomorrow on Saturday, November 17th from 18:00 to 21:00 to the Open Doors Day at the Rae Schoolhouse and at 7:00 pm for the opening of Elvira Akzhigitova exhibition.
