10 September–5 November 2022
Danziger Gallery will be presenting the photographs of Karen Knorr – a 21st century bestiary showcasing a selection of her constructed animal pictures taken in India between 2008 and 2022. This will be their fourth presentation of Knorr’s work over the last 10 years and the first solo exhibition of her work in Los Angeles. The show will include recent additions to the India Song series, including The Protector, Junha Mahal, Dungarpur, 2022to be exhibited for the first time.
While Knorr’s images take some of their inspiration from the Indian tradition of personifying animals in literature and art, there is another almost subconscious strain to her work. Going back to the time of cave painting we see that these early visual artists not only recorded their lives and surroundings, but used art to express themselves. The depiction of animals in symbolic and powerful ways and the urge to create these images with the best tools at hand is a line stretching from these unnamed cave painters to Karen Knorr.
