Another Way of Telling: Photographs by Anna Fox & Karen Knorr

December 8 – January 6
Three Shadows Photography Art Centre, Beijing
Curated by Xu Hao

 Another Way of Telling: Photographs by Anna Fox and Karen Knorr” showcases almost 100 works from the rich, dynamic careers of two of Britain’s leading documentary photographers. Here, acerbic wit is brought to sharp social commentary on subjects that are seen through two highly individual perspectives that wrap the photographers’ penetrating insight into the issues of our times in a warm dose of humour. The exhibition includes selections from representative themes in each of their work, as well entire series which function like photo essays exploring topics like class, working environments, and self-awareness. Here we have Anna Fox’s Work Stations, and Basingstoke, in contrast with Karen Knorr’s Belgravia about the gulf in class attitudes, and Punks which documented the first generation of the punk music movement with Olivier Richon in the UK in the mid-1970s.

Interview with Karen Knorr available to view online

Since the 1970s, photographers have increasingly asked questions about the nature of the medium and the role of the photographer in the construction of the image. Women artists have been particularly active in this, as photography provides a way of working distinct from the traditionally masculine art forms of painting and sculpture.

Karen Knorr at La Gacilly Photo Festival 2018

Official opening June 1st
June 2-September 30, 2018 
Free event – Open Monday to Sunday 24 hours a day
 

This year marks La Gacilly Photo Festival’s 15th birthday. Over this time, it has won a significant place in the world of photography, in France and internationally.  In the village of La Gacilly, the gardens, alleys and walls of the houses are transformed into photographic galleries dedicated to art for the passer by.

American photographer Karen Knorr is taking us through the looking glass. She is a landmark figure in contemporary photography and belongs to a generation of artists who have questioned the nature of the craft by no longer seeing it as a pure expression of reality but as the creation of fabricated images. By capturing foxes or wild boar, stags or herons who have ventured into the sumptuous residences of pre-Revolutionary France or sublime Indian palaces, the artist composes unlikely scenarios in the face of which the amused yet unsettled viewer is reduced to the status of incredulous witness.

Once Only, Only Once Kyoto 2018

Karen Knorr
Once only, Only Once 

Undertaken in Daitoku-ji’s Obai-in temple, this work is part of Knorr’s ongoing series titled “Monogatari,” a piece inspired by the artist’s reflection of Japan’s cultural heritage and the wabi-sabi aesthetic (a Japanese sense of beauty that emphasizes simplicity and imperfection) during her travels through the country in 2012. This work combines photography and byobu-style folding screens printed on rice paper. Themes include animal life, Japanese cultural heritage, and myths; especially those of animals appearing in the temple and shrine architecture of Tokyo, Nara, and Kyoto, and those featured in the Tale of Genji. Knorr’s work also introduces animals that personify ghosts and supernatural monsters belonging to local folklore. Women wearing kimonos also appear to symbolize the omnipresence of tradition.

This is the first presentation ever of a new groundbreaking exhibition in which contemporary art speaks in creative and compelling ways to the timely issue of endangered animals. The international array of major artists includes several Americans who work in diverse media and variously use poetry, pathos, and sometimes the grotesque to evoke the plight of threatened species. Themes range from poaching and pollution to broader concepts such as our psychological bonds with animals.

Creativity has long been associated with vanguard ideas: art and music can give a voice to the unheard, power to the vulnerable and celebrate the human capacity for positive action, even in adversity.
