Annette Kelm was born in Stuttgart in 1975 and is among the most outstanding representatives of a younger generation of photographers who have drawn international attention through a new perspective on the world. With her individual photos and series depicting arrangements of everyday objects, portraits, architecture and landscapes or seemingly unusual narratives, Kelm creates images which she uses not only to expose how our perception and our vision function, but also to reflect upon cultural and sociopolitical topics. In spite of the conceptual components that characterise the artist’s work, these photographs are defined by a subtle – but simultaneously touching – emotionality and temperament which make them into fascinating and lastingly resonant images. At the Kölnischer Kunstverein, particular emphasis will be placed on the artist’s work of the last five years, which will be presented through a representative selection of works.

On the occasion of the exhibition the book Subjects and Objects (published by Koenig Books) will be edited by Kölnischer Kunstverein, Cologne; and Presentation House Gallery, North Vancouver.
