KAREN KNORR: TRANSMIGRATIONS
Augusta Edwards Fine Art
Cromwell Place, London
20–31 October 2021
Booking is now open for Karen Knorr’s solo exhibition ‘Transmigrations’ in Gallery 1 at 4 Cromwell Place, London SW7 2JE. In her first one-artist show in the UK since her Tate Britain exhibition ‘Belgravia and Gentlemen’ in 2014, Augusta Edwards Fine Art will be featuring a selection of Knorr’s recent and past large-scale colour work including India Song, Monogatari and Fables.
Transmigrations refers to both displacement and reincarnation as well as to the migration of souls to an afterlife. In this age of climate change and of great migrations to come, where will our wildlife reside? Animals appear in Knorr’s photographs as signifiers of a radical alterity, or “otherness”, representing the vulnerable, displaced, and rejected. Animals in three series (India Song, Monogatari and Fables), set in India, Japanese and European interiors, are the principal actors in a perpetual conflict between nature and culture. Humans are now both perpetrators and victims of the oncoming horrors of our warming earth.
