First Time Solo Art Exhibition 2014
The Malta Society of Arts is Malta’s oldest institution in promotion of arts and crafts.
The work presented by Kerstin Arnemann are particularly intriguing in reaching an inventive understanding of the essence of the architectonic structures or compositions. Her photography is remarkable for its light and shade, tonal value and chiaroscuro, used to emphasize the appeal of structural forms. It goes beyond a stale game of patterns and lines. In works such as "The Paradox of Freedom", the artist associates the main formal structure of the composition with an abstract concept that transcends the materiality of the object. The two different realms are connected to recreate a contrasting conceptual binary which provokes reflection and a pleasing sensation. It is an articulation of the internal disparity one finds between the visual image of a confined building and its evocation of freedom through the use of open spaces and broad uncluttered areas. It speaks the language of minimalism, revealing the beauty of the starkness of form and the exploring the paradox of complexity within simplicity.

The relationship between art & privacy.
A collective exhibition representing ten photographers. Each of them took on a separate topic with a series of 5 prints. My series portrayed Street Performers busking around.
Street photography is a recognized genre of art making. It involves the capturing of un-posed candid images of people and everyday life situations.
Live the Fairytale 2013
My first Solo Exhibition at Mater Dei Hospital, Malta. All prints have been donated to Mater Dei Hospital and are hanging today in the children's ward.
The main purpose of this exhibition was to bring some joy to young and old people. In an era of rapid electronic progress, I hope to bring back the good old habit of reading and to motivate young and old people to remember the magic moments fairytales can give us… and to keep them alive.
Following after the exhibition, I have been invited by the former President of the Republic of Malta, Dr. George Abela, to pay a courtesy call visit at the President's Palace San Anton.
