Annette Kelm’s photographs show seemingly simple, but at the same time unruly motifs that draw on genres such as still life, object and studio photography, or classical architectural photography but don’t conform entirely with their conventions. They flatten things onto the plane or multiply them into series. Often depicted frontally and with great sharpness of detail, the minimal yet visually opulent object worlds seem to emphasize their translation into the two-dimensional space of photography.

Kelm’s conceptual approach, coupled with a high degree of image definition and neutral light, lends a poignant presence to the depicted world of objects.

The exhibition at Kunsthalle Wien focuses on works in which architecture, design, or constellations of everyday objects prove to be visual manifestations of complex genealogies.
