“...It contained seven objects. The slender fluted bone, surely formed for flight, surely from the wing of some large bird. Three archaic circuitboards, faced with mazes of gold. A smooth white sphere of baked clay. An age-blackened fragment of lace. A fingerlength segment of what she assumed was bone from a human wrist, grayish white, inset smoothly with the silicon shaft of a small instrument that must once have ridden flush with the surface of the skin - but the thing’s face was seared and blackened.”
William Gibson, “Count Zero”, 1986

This book marks the occasion of two solo exhibitions of the artist, the first at Presentation House Gallery, North Vancouver (8 September – 14 October 2012), and the second at Kölnischer Kunstverein, Cologne (7 November – 21 December 2014).
The photographs Annette Kelm has produced over the past fifteen years constitute, in all the diversity of their forms, one of the most fascinating, resonant contributions to recent contemporary art. Emerging during an era of photography's rapid and ongoing reinvention as both artistic object and digital image, Kelm has situated herself as a picture maker of unapologetic clarity.
Her practice employs a comprehensive understanding of and devotion to established traditions of photographic studio practice, marked by an affiliation for analogue film and darkroom techniques, as well as a continuing interest in the pictorial genres of landscape, portraiture and still life.
With recourse to these tried and tested idioms, she has constructed a body of photographic imagery that is remarkable for its visual acuity and resistance to descriptive language.
Features a conversation between Isabelle Graw and Annette Kelm / Tom McDonough.

Cuttings [Supplement] was produced in association with Simon Starling's solo exhibition at The Power Plant in 2008 and includes texts by Gregory Burke, Mark Godfrey, Reid Shier, Sarah Stanners and Simon Starling.The exhibition featured the commissioned work Infestation Piece (Musselled Moore) (2007-8), a piece that collapses the history of Henry Moore's sculpture, Warrior with Shield (1953–4), with the zebra mussel infestation in Lake Ontario.This publication is a companion piece to Cuttings (2005), but stands on its own with essays focusing on the commissioned sculpture and works made since Starling won the Turner Prize in 2005. Autoxylopyrocycloboros (2006), Nachbau (Reconstruction) (2007) and Wilhelm Noack oHG (2006), are considered with explanatory texts and colour illustrations.This publication is a proud recipient of the 2008 OAAG Awards in the Visual Art Book category.
