Coming a long way from academical education of painting and drawing in Russia, few design schools and photography studies in Germany, Elizaveta has settled in a very individualistic artistic practice, which is based on the special feature of photographic medium to always have a connection to an existing reality. By acting as a painter and a sculptor first, she creates a unique reality, which will be fixed only in her photographic images. So, she investigates how the classical artistic media influence each other and how the borders between them melt away nowadays. By making an exhibition Elizaveta expands her interest in the real space, offering visitors in a subtle way to experience a new physical exploration of a room.
The analysis of human perception and the wish for people to think more about our visual culture and its manipulation is the basis for Elizaveta Podgornaia’s work
