Elzbieta (Ela) Kurowska ALIVE

May 1–30,  2020

ALIVE explores elemental properties of life; its ability to self-organize and arise from amorphous organic matter. By combining photography with science, Kurowska attempts to mimic and visualize the process of life creation using photo-elastic gels and cross-polarized light. The images reveal beautiful worlds inhabited by otherworldly life made of light and vivid colours and emerging from dark space. Removed from the context of scale, Kurowska’s photographs depict the awe-inspiring, universal vitality of life.
