Antarctica. An Exhibition on Alienation explores the patterns of alienation that take root in society across epochs, defining alienation in terms of the self's relationship to the self, and the external world, or as a “relationship based on the absence of a relationship”. Showing numerous contemporary artworks, the exhibition explores how the term alienation functions in our world today. In doing so, it also addresses the following question: what other forms of relationship to the self and to the world do we need before we can begin to create something like a space supportive of self-determination and self-realization?
In her works, Annette Kelm presents her works in visually arresting and often unnatural scenes that blur the symbolic lines between subject and object. Her pictures often capture precise arrangements of things, much like still life or studio photography. On the other hand, Kelm's visual style imbues the objects with an almost hyperreal presence. Free from any form of narration, the emphasis is placed on the compositional moment itself: everything is what it is, but also receives an abstract, perhaps merely assumed, relevance.
