Female studier, 2021

Cardboard as a malleable material. Blue with rivets like jeans. The vase as a symbol of fertility. Female shapes like Venus from Willendorf. A common conceptual world - hips, vulva, shoulders, lips.

"In Pernille Pontoppidan Pedersen's work, the plinth is often an integrated or built-in element. The plinth as a base for form studies of the duality of aesthetics as well as the transformation of an object into sculpture. She explores this with great curiosity and finds the almost lost method of higher status interesting as a cornerstone of the study of the infinite possibilities of materials."
