About

Karen Knorr Homage to Ustad Mansur, Red Fort, Agra, 2017 Hahnemühle ink jet print 48 x 60 inches 122 x 152 cm Edition 1 of 5 Through her photography and videos, German-born American artist Karen Knorr explores the dynamics of power and its influence on cultural heritage, from the patriarchal structures of the English aristocracy to the roles and representations of animals in art. Knorr is best known for her seminal photographic series, India Song, which began with an extensive road trip across India in 2008 (followed by multiple return trips), resulting in a body of work that focused on the interiors of significant architectural spaces of Rajasthan, a northern Indian state known for its opulent palaces, temples and forts. Within these lavish rooms— symbolic of wealth and societal power structures—Knorr digitally imposes images of live tigers, elephants, peacocks and monkeys, which she photographed separately in reserves and zoos. Lush and playful, these vibrantly colorful images appear to be photographic renderings of Indian folklore, in which the line between reality and illusion is blurred. Yet Knorr’s work, which is influenced by surrealism and the mystical realism of Latin America, delves below the surface to consider issues of colonialism, exoticism, appropriation, societal hierarchies, and femininity as it relates to the animal world—concepts that are as layered and multifaceted as the country itself. This critically acclaimed series is the subject of a large-format monograph, with a preface by British writer William Dalrymple, released by Italian fine-art publisher Skira Editore in 2014. Knorr was awarded the Photography Pilar Citoler Prize in 2010 and she was nominated for the Deutsche Börse in both 2011 and 2012. She also received nominations for the Prix Pictet in 2012 and 2018. Knorr is a Professor of Photography at the University for the Creative Arts since 2010. As an advocate for women in photography, she was made an Honorary Fellow at the Royal Photographic Society in 2018, as well as Honorary Chair of Women in Photography.
