Elvira Akzigitova (1988) is an analogue visual artist from the ex-soviet cement suburbia in Estonia.
Photography is her way of dealing with a shifting and fragmented environment. Her work uncovers the bond between form and content, as well as the ambivalence between intension and chance.
Her current field of interest lies in analogue electro-photography, a technique named THE KIRLIAN EFFECT, which allows the portrayal of glowing ENERGY FIELDS. They are bursts of light that suggest an affinity towards capturing the ephemeral and passing nature.
BODY ELECTRIC and FLOWERS OF EVIL are the evolving electro-photography series that the artist is visually recording and researching. She believes that every “living” thing radiates, and is able to cast spells with its magnetism.
