ELENA PAGEL – a freelance artist, ceramist, photographer and filmmaker. She is originally from Russia, from Siberia and has lived in Dresden since 1999. Her pictures are intensely coloured and playful: People transform themselves into flowers, birds, fantasy creatures, as if they were immersed in an endless field of life. Each work is a small visual story full of diverse emotions and mystical experiences. She works with different techniques: Painting, graphics, collages, ceramic sculptures, photographs and the medium of film.
