HB381 inaugurates new gallery with an exhibition of works by Pernille Pontoppidan Pedersen

HB381 is pleased to announce Tentacular Thinking, an exhibition of new ceramic sculptures by Pernille Pontoppidan Pedersen (Danish, b. 1987). Opening on 12 May, Tentacular Thinking is the gallery’s inaugural show and the artist’s first solo presentation in the United States.

Pontoppidan Pedersen’s work is inherently pluralistic, concerned with notions of kinship as they extend to the “more than human” interspecies realms and relationships in which we participate. Drawing on ideas of Ecofeminism and Norse mythology, she fertilizes a distinctly feminine paradigm, working from a place of freedom and intuition. Her physicality is visible—fossilized as she pushes, coils, pinches, and layers clay on a human scale, infusing it directly with her energy. Through a process of theoretical and political composting, she imagines a speculative future based on interconnectedness and caring.

HB381 is a new contemporary art gallery founded by Juliet Burrows and Kim Hostler. Located in the heart of Tribeca’s gallery district, HB381 serves as a dedicated space for solo artist presentations, focusing on contemporary Nordic sculpture and ceramics. The gallery’s program will highlight work that is created by hand through deep material investigation and with the intention of the artist at its core.
