KAREN KNORR at ENCONTROS DA IMAGEM /International Photography Festival
HAPPINESS, A PLACE IN THE SUN
SEPTEMBER 20 – NOVEMBER 5, 2016
The International Photography Festival ENCONTROS DA IMAGEM returns to the city of Braga to focus on the affective dimension, during a time of tremendous changes and upheavals. Alongside the current technological impulse that questions the limits of the visible, in which the image casts us to even further away places, to where the world is revealed through its most hidden and unexpected aspects, it seemed like the appropriate moment to promote an edition dedicated to the discovery of the other, appealing to the sentimental turn and to the simple and discreet quest for Happiness.
The Lanesborough, a recent set of photographs by Karen Knorr represents the pursuit for happiness, staging a wedding party of taxidermised animals enjoying their place in the sun in the luxury rooms and suites of Lanesborough hotel in the heart of London.
