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.

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.

‘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.
