Country Life Monograph Now Available

Country Life
Available Now 
Published by STANLEY/BARKER
Artist Talk & Signing at Offprint 2024

 
Karen Knorr’s new monograph Country Life explores attitudes within the British aristocracy in the 1980s through a series of carefully structured black and white photographs and textual fragments.

Presented a masterfully printed outsized monograph, in a protective transparent PVC jacket, the title of the book Country Life reflects ironically upon a society magazine founded 126 years ago, which Knorr first came across at the homes of her parents’ white upper-class friends, which she noticed that its readership seemed mainly those well-heeled Sloane Rangers and debutantes who owned second homes in the British countryside and engaged in activities such as riding, fishing and hunting.

Knorr’s refined images were taken in London, Scotland and Oxfordshire in domestic interiors and gardens laid out according to the picturesque canons of the eighteenth century. The work was originally commissioned by The Photographers’ Gallery for a group exhibit entitled Britain in 1984, adding to her Privileged trilogy which also includes Gentlemen and Belgravia, both published by STANLEY/BARKER. Karen Knorr will be giving an artist talk and signing copies of both Country Life and the special edition box set Privileged at Offprint London on 19 May with STANLEY/BARKER. Further details can be found below.

Coming Spring 2024: Connoisseurs and Academies

Connoisseurs and Academies
Published by Kehrer, Spring 2024
Plus Upcoming Print Release

 

Connoisseurs and Academies, two series of works made by Karen Knorr in the mid 1980’s are about to appear in the book Connoisseurs & Academies, published by Kehrer this Spring. Works will be shown at Photo London 2024 with Sundaram Tagore Gallery and there will be book launch with Kehrer and Karen Knorr Studio in London during the period of the fair.

Karen Knorr’s photographic series Connoisseurs & Academies was photographed between 1986 and 2005 with an analog camera, her images let us venture into the intricate world of the history of museums and stately homes, of objects, paintings, connoisseurship, and the structures of academies. The use of animals as an allegorical motif is today embedded in Knorr’s practice, but they first appear in Connoisseurs, where a chimpanzee becomes the Genius of the Place
