Annette Kelm: Light Double

König Galerie

29 Sep 201825 Nov 2018

The photographic double portrait by Annette Kelm from which this exhibition takes its title shows the artist, musician and publisher Sonja Cvitkovic and the gallerist Johann König.
Since they are both wearing the same orange bomber jacket and have adopted a similar pose, it remains unclear whether someone acted as a light double. But the distribution of light and shadow in the lower half of the images actually point to diverging lighting conditions – the difference between hard artificial and softer natural light. In the juxtaposition of two corresponding images, hierarchical constructions and their effects become visible.

Annette Kelm ( born in 1975, Stuttgart) lives and works in Berlin.
