Karen Knorr: Fables Artist Talk

Karen Knorr: Fables Artist Talk

16 September, 7pm
Arnulf Rainer Museum
Josefspl. 5, 2500 Baden, Austria

As part of Fstival La Gacilly-Baden, Karen Knorr will be giving a free artist talk at Arnulf Rainer Museum. Karen Knorr creates artificial scenes with an artificially realistic feel, with fake animals in fake places, which congeal past and present. The strangeness and the irony with which she undermines any familiarity create the artificiality and the enigma that also shape fiction and the core of fables. Reality is being veiled in order to spell out truth.

What’s better than the theme of the home, the home so dear to the heart of the British, to highlight the richness, the diversity and the development of photography across the Channel? Home Sweet Home brings together thirty artists of all generations who allow us to share the intimacy and the everyday life of Britain from the 1970s to the present day. A look around the property that sheds light from different angles on the social, cultural and political realities, past and present, of British society. Karen Knorr will be exhibiting the a selection of works from the series Belgravia (1979–1981)
