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.

‘Constructed Space’ is a show about space, architecture, human inventiveness, and how we have historically viewed the world. It is about the adaptive use of space as well as how photographers handle three or even four dimensions and present bodies of work that are both unique, inventive, expansive, as well as aesthetically, and intellectually compelling.

Karen Knorr will be showing work from Metamorphoses at Danziger Gallery

Metamorphoses, a new series in progress explores Italian legacy in Europe using Ovid’s Metamorphoses as the frame in which to consider heritage and mutability in today’s Europe. Pagan stories overlap with Christian ones, as an anxious response to recent global migrations that may transform the remnants of old Europe into a pluralistic dynamic federation or a closed fortress.

PULSE Contemporary Art Fair in Miami Beach returns to Indian Beach Park at 46th Street and Collins Avenue. The fair will open on Thursday, December 7th with a Private Preview Brunch, 10am – 1pm, to welcome VIP guests and press for first access to new work.
