Architecture: Places Transformed Through Time

“Architecture is the very mirror of life. You only have to cast your eyes on buildings to feel the presence of the past, the spirit of a place; they are the reflection of society.” – I. M. Pei

The oldest surviving product of a photographic process, the first known photograph, View from the Window at Le Gras, presents a fascinating insight into one of humanity’s well-established curiosities early on in the history of photography, the importance of recording the constructed environment. Throughout artistic mediums, the subject of architecture has framed the narratives and developments of some of history’s most defining moments.

Home Sweet Home at Institut pour la photographie

Home Sweet Home 1970–2018: The British Home, A Political History

12 October–15 December
Institut pour la photographie
Lille, France

The British’s attachment to their homes has continued to assert itself since the early nineteenth century, becoming an important component of their identity. The English language has invented the words comfort and comfortable, words imported into French because nothing better expressed the link between the well-being of soul and body and the domestic interior. 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).

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.
