Sundaram Tagore Gallery will be exhibiting a number of works from gallery artists at Intersect Aspen Art & Design Fair between 31 July–4 August at Aspen Ice Garden.

Works from Karen Knorr’s series Monogatari will be exhibited. The series, started in 2012, imagines animal life and Japanese cultural heritage referencing buddhist Jataka tales and Japanese stories.

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).

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.
