India Song by Karen Knorr

Karen Knorr‘s works portrays the visual richness found in the stories of India using sacred sites to highlight caste, femininity and its relationship with the animal world.

In her most recent photography project, the “India Song”, each finished photograph is both a mystery and a fable. She recreated the Panchatantra – an ancient Indian collection of animal fables for the 21st century and blurred the boundaries between illusion and reality. She inserts the animal subjects by digital means within the consistently frontal interior photograph. These interiors are carefully photographed with a large format analogue camera and Knorr’s own photos of live animals are then inserted to the rooms and sites.

The India Song is her first solo show in United States. The series was also nominated for the 2012 Deutsche Borse Photography Prize.
