In her work, Annnette Kelm is interested in the function of objects and the nature of their representation, typologies, mass production, design, and technology. Her photographs often conflate several genres into single images, or develop single motifs across serial images to combine a variety of artistic, historical, and cross-cultural references. Annette Kelm’s work will be the subject of forthcoming exhibitions at the Kunsthalle Vienna, Vienna in 2019, and the Ludwig Foundation, Aachen, Germany in 2018.
