With this installation, Karen Pontoppidan is presenting KNELL (2016-7), her latest work group. In it, she continues to adhere to the kind of principles that basically govern her jewelry and were already beginning to come to the fore in the cycles that preceded it. These include questions such as the power of jewelry in the gender debate, the function and role of such jewelry that is something between a private, intimate piece and one fit for social occasions; other topics are the aesthetic scope of such jewelry and the way it is anchored in the discourse on art in general.
