The choice of material ranges from found objects, organic material as well as textiles with inherent meanings. Despite the abstract nature of the works, they process existential themes in a narrative form. To evoke the lived life in the chosen material / or thing is central to the artist.

PERNILLE EGESKOV: født i 1970. Uddannet i 1997 som kostumedesigner fra Det Kongelige Danske Kunstakademis Skole for Design. I 2007 debuterede hun som billedkunstner på Charlottenborgs Forårsudstilling og har siden arbejdet som billedkunstner.                                                              

Pernille Egeskov har haft flere markante museumsudstillinger bl.a. på Bornholms Kunstmuseum i 2019 med soloudstillingen Belonging, der i 2020 blev vist i en udvidet version på Vendsyssel Kunstmuseum.
I 2018 har hun udstillet solo i Haus8 i Kiel (Risse &Spalten) og deltaget i en udstilling på Museum Burg Posterstein (Salon Europa) i Tyskland.
I 2015 udstillede hun på Vejle Kunstmuseum med soloudstillingen Unravel.
Pernille Egeskov er initiativtager til og leder/kurator af udstillingsplatformen Pop-Up Contemporary, et non-profit eksperimentarium for signifikante kunstnere og gæste-kuratorer fra ind- og udland, for at afprøve nye kunstneriske ideer og initiativer. 

I sin kunstneriske praksis arbejder Pernille Egeskov i et poetisk og konceptuelt univers med collager, objekter og installationer. Materialevalget strækker sig fra fundne genstande, organisk materiale såvel som tekstiler med iboende betydninger. Værkernes abstrakte karakter til trods bearbejder de eksistentielle emner i en fortællende form. At fremmane det levede liv i det valgte materiale /eller ting er centralt for kunstneren.
