Agnieszka Kozlowska is a Polish artist and researcher who produces most of her works in the Alps. She earned her PhD from Northumbria University, Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom. Kozlowska’s practice stems from experiments in the medium of photography and is driven by a fascination with the moment of photographic exposure, when a tangible link is formed between the light-sensitive surface and the physical world. She is interested in the potential of photographic objects – understood as physical traces rather than purely as images – to communicate embodied experience of walking through remote natural environments, especially mountains. Her working processes are extreme in their slowness, labor-intensity, openness to chance occurrences and potential for failure. Building large-format cameras and exposing unconventional light-sensitive materials, she explores ways of producing unique photographic artefacts directly in a camera.

Her works have been shown in solo and group exhibitions across Europe. Current project ‘Carved by Light’ has been supported by Arts Council England, Polish Institute in Berlin, and Culture.pl. It has been selected in the Forecast mentoring programme in Berlin, developed with the guidance of renowned photographer Bas Princen and shown in a solo exhibition at Kunsthaus Zug, Switzerland (2016).
