Text

Anett Stuth's photographs are images. But not in the customary sense photgraphic images, which (wether as authentic likenesses or fictional constructions) suggest a unity of time, place, and motif. Stimulated by discourses on art and photo reportage, on documentary photography, Anett Stuth purses a path which transcends the conventional dimension of photographic space and redefines it.Observed at a slight distance, we see a 'single' photograph: a uniform composition in which additional spaces and perspectives naturally open up. Then, when closely observed, we become immersed in a wide diversity of pictures and worlds. In constellations we never thought of in this way before, and never encountered until now. Interconnections and dichotomies perhaps reminiscent of ourdreams form a puzzling alliance of associatve loops.
(Michaela Nolte)
