India Song & Metamorphoses Exhibition

Jackson Fine Art

Atlanta, GA 30305

Karen Knorr in collaboration with Danziger Gallery, New York, will be showing new work from two series, India Song and Metamorphoses for her first exhibition with Jackson Fine Art, Atlanta, Georgia.

Karen Knorr’s photography explores cultural heritage and its ideological underpinings. Questions concerning post colonialism and its relationship to aesthetics have permeated her photographic work since the 1980’s.  Her work, India Song, researches the stories and myths of India photographing animals and placing them in temples and palaces across heritage sites in Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, and Maharastra blurring boundaries between reality and illusion. More recently she has worked in Italy in the Caprarola, Tivoli and Palermo making work exploring the mythological underpinnings of Europe referencing Ovid called, Metamorphoses.
