Photographed in temples, shrines, ryokans and gardens in Kyoto, Nara, Ise and Tokyo, animals and women in traditional kimonos evoke screen art of the Edo period. Knorr, inspired by Japanese art (ukijo-e, screen painting) has produced a series of photographs of Japanese animals which appear in temples and shrines referencing the folktales of the supernatural such as Kaidan and Shinto kami (spirits).

Sundaram Tagore Gallery
Stand 412, South Grounds, The Royal Chelsea Hospital, London
30 June–7 July

Karen Knorr will exhibiting works from India Song as part of two upcoming presentations in London with Sundaram Tagore Gallery, Masterpiece London Art Fair (30 June–7 July). Recently Karen Knorr presented the solo exhibition Transmigrations at Sundaram Tagore’s Chelsea gallery in New York.

Karen Knorr’s work India Song celebrates the rich visual culture, the foundation myths and stories of northern India, focusing on Rajasthan and using sacred and secular sites to consider caste, femininity and its relationship to the animal world. Interiors are painstakingly photographed with a large format Sinar P3 analogue camera and scanned to very high resolution. Live animals are inserted into the architectural sites, fusing high resolution digital with analogue photography. Animals photographed in sanctuaries, zoos and cities inhabit palaces, mausoleums , temples and holy sites, interrogating Indian cultural heritage and rigid hierarchies. Cranes, zebus, langurs, tigers and elephants mutate from princely pets to avatars of past feminine historic characters, blurring boundaries between reality and illusion and reinventing the Panchatantra for the 21st century.

Opening Doors – Danziger Gallery’s Inaugural Los Angeles Exhibition

Opening Doors – A Group Show
Danziger Gallery
Bergamont Station B1, Santa Monica
19 February–23 April 2022

The photographs in this show come largely from the photographic artists the gallery is privileged to work with. They have been selected for the opening of our new Los Angeles gallery not only because they celebrate the medium; but more importantly, what they have in common is that each is as unique as a fingerprint. Great photographs don’t just open a door to the worlds they capture, they open a door to the mind and idea of their creators.

After 30 years of having a gallery in New York, 2022 marks the opening of Danziger Gallery’s first space in Los Angeles. So this inaugural show in many ways has the notion of being assembled over years if not decades. Finding great pictures takes time. Content matters as does concept.  In so much as each individual gallery has a particular aesthetic that can be defined,  I hope the pictures in this show are mostly uplifting and speak for themselves.
