Karen Knorr: Transmigrations Solo Exhibition at Cromwell Place

Augusta Edwards Fine Art
Cromwell Place, London
20–31 October 2021


Announcing a new print edition and the solo exhibition ‘Transmigration’ by Karen Knorr with Augusta Edwards Fine Art in Gallery 1 at 4 Cromwell Place, London SW7 2JE. Plus Open Studio during Photo London.

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? Will the situation lead to a redefinition of living space in favour of the natural world and the displaced tribes? 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.
