About Pernille Pontoppidan Pedersen
Pernille Pontoppidan Pedersen was born in 1987 in Skive (Denmark). She currently lives and works in Silkeborg (Denmark).
In her artistic practice, Pernille Pontoppidan Pedersen takes an experimental approach, often combining ceramic materials with other materials such as marble, granite or other forms of stone, and exploring how materials can be transformed in a way that leaves their inherent exuberance intact. She is spurred on by an intuitive, immediate fascination and enthusiasm with raw materials, relating both to their specific use in various processes and their inherent microstructures and textures. Her expression is typically quirky with a kitschy quality bordering on a deliberate anti-aesthetic.
As part of the Curio exhibition, Pernille Pontoppidan Pedersen will present “Ja Mester! (Willumsen’s Exercise models)” (2018).
Pernille Pontoppidan Pedersen is represented by Køppe Contemporary Objects.
