This book is published in conjunction with the exhibitions Annette Kelm, Witte de With, Center for Contemporary Art, Rotterdam, 13 June – 24 August 2008 curated by Nicolaus Schafhausen and Zoë Gray; Kunsthalle Zürich, 24 January – 26 April 2009, curated by Beatrix Ruf; KW Institute for Contemporary Art, Berlin, 3 May – 19 July 2009, curated by Susanne Pfeffer.
With intense visual clarity, Annette Kelm portrays objects dislocated from their usual context. Contrary to their apparent simplicity and reduced aesthetic, Kelm’s images contain a wealth of references, from interior design and architecture, to Hollywood films or current day concerns with exoticism and global trade.
