'Ja Mester!' is a site-specific installation of objects, or "exercise models" in which Pontoppidan envisions herself to be the apprentice of the late artist and architect of Den Frie, J.F. Willumsen. Willumsen's distinct artistic vocabulary is a large source of inspiration to Pontoppidan, who has translated and transformed his work on canvas into three dimensional, sculptural objects. Pontoppidan mixes genres, cultural and artistic references and places Willumsen into an alternative art history, in which her work is the only testimony.
