Performances Ria Pacquée


With the exhibition 'They are looking at us, we are looking at them' Belgian artist Ria Pacquée creates new performances and installations. In July and August, performances take place every Sunday, alternately by Ria Pacquée and other artists invited by her.

Individual visitors

These artists emphasize a number of key points in her own oeuvre: four women who embody the encounter between East and West by their origin, journey and/or work: they were born in the East (Japan, Philippines and South Korea), but have a clear connection to the West.

The opposite is true for Pacquée: Antwerp is her home, but her travels regularly take her to the East, often for extended periods. The five artists share a similar mentality in their search for connections but their work is highly individualistic and hyper-personal, and therefore very different. Ria Pacquée allows her guests complete freedom in developing their performance, its duration, and the choice of location in the Middelheim Museum.
