Pooh's tigger says that a table is to put things on. And this one?


"Real and fictional, objective and emotional, present and absent, a collage of facts, stories, and history offering hints of what the pictures might possibly be and presenting a reality in which the simultaneity of many realities, contradictions, breaks, and ambiguities are the stuff of everyday life." Beatrix Ruf Parkett 87

“The quotidian objects that populate Annette Kelm’s distinct photographs—hats, bouquets, lamps, or the table furniture for Parkett—are reinserted into baffling situations. Kelm carefully frames and photographs these subjects with medium- and large-format cameras against obscure backgrounds like handkerchiefs, tablecloths, or solid colors. Kelm later hand-prints her pictures, ensuring each displays' incontestable clarity, to the extent that her precisely staged compositions vividly conjure mass marketing and advertising images. Kelm’s work is multifaceted, with each photograph containing multiple cross-cultural, artistic, and historical references.” -Artspace
