For her first solo show at Sundaram Tagore Gallery, American/British photographer Karen Knorr presents a specially curated selection of images that explore ideas of migration and multiculturalism. This exhibition brings together several of the artist’s most powerful series, including the acclaimed body of work India Song.
Known for sumptuous imagery of exotic animals digitally fused into opulent architectural settings, Knorr’s work is as multifaceted and culturally diverse as the artist herself. Born in Frankfurt and raised in San Juan, Puerto Rico, Knorr finished her education in Paris before settling in London, where she currently resides.
Throughout her career, Knorr has used video and photography as a method of critical inquest, employing opulent palaces, temples, museums and monuments of Asia and Western Europe to frame issues of power and class structure rooted in cultural heritage. Rather than focus on the dispossessed, Knorr aims her lens at the privileged class, the comparatively few who are in charge.
