Presents, in one elegant and exhaustive volume, "Genii Loci", the marvellous Conceptual art of Karen Knorr. "Since her ground-breaking photographic Documentary Series in the early-1980's, Karen Knorr has continued to explore, with wit and humour, ideas that underpin heritage and patrimony in the formation of national identity. Knorr explores the boundaries between animals and humans in a world that has become relentlessly materialistic. A comprehensive overview of this influential artist's work, including new developments using sound, installation, and video" (Publisher's blurb). Karen Knorr is a genuine rarity in the contemporary art and photography world: She is a serious, intelligent, and uncompromising Conceptual artist whose work is not only NOT deadly-serious but is actually fun: Witty, ironic, and often humorous, without ever being condescending to her important subject or her prospective audience. Her subject could not be more timely or relevant: The degradation of our physical environment ("Nature") by Man ("Culture"). Her most beautiful images show an ordinary animal and an iconic masterpiece in a "face-to-face" encounter (that of course, never happens in real life). At her best, she is the artist-as-thinker, who wears her brilliant ideas and insights as lightly as (breakable) eggs in a basket. "Genii Loci", an ancient Latin phrase, means the spirit, atmosphere, and ambience of a place. An absolute "must-have" title for Karen Knorr collectors. This copy is very prominently, neatly, and beautifully signed, dated, and inscribed in black pen on the title page by the artist/photographer: "With regards & in friendship, Karen Knorr 8/04/03". It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. The recipient is named, an important figure in the art and photography world. Laid-in is a pristine copy of the Exhibition Souvenir of The Photographers' Gallery London, which is also very prominently and beautifully signed and inscribed by the artist/photographer. This title is a contemporary art and photography classic. As far as we know, this is the only such signed, dated, and inscribed copy of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A rare signed copy thus. Lavishly illustrated with color plates. One of the most brilliant artist/photographers of our time. A fine copy. ISBN 1901033384. Bookseller Inventory #
Synopsis: Including esays and an interview with Karen Knorr, this extensively illustrated text is a comprehensive overview of the photographer's work from the 1990s to 2002. Knorr's photographs explore with wit and humour the patronage and heritage that informs our ideas of art and national identity, with images taken at historical art collections and stately homes, and new developments using sound, installation and video. Knorr has been making photographs since the early 1980s, using a documentary style that recalls earlier traditions of portraiture and painting,
