Karen Knorr: Transmigrations
Nordic Light Festival, Kristiansund, Norway
26–29 October 2023
Artist Talk: 26 October 2023, 8pm
For a few days in the fall, on the rugged west coast of Norway, world-renowned photo legends, aspiring photographers, students and photography lovers gather in the small and charming Norwegian coastal town of Kristiansund. The Nordic Light festival program presents lectures, exhibitions, gallery talks, book signings, portfolio reviews and films, attracting photographers from all over the world.
As part of the festival the solo exhibition Karen Knorr: Transmigrations features a selection of Knorr’s recent and past work including India Song, Metamorphoses, and Fables. 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? Karen Knorr will present an artist talk as part of the opening night celebrations at the Caroline Conference Center.
