Slammm, Ramble, Perform

Slammm, Ramble, Perform is Ria Pacquée’s first monograph which sheds a clear light on the artist's extensive, tireless and relevant oeuvre. Ria Pacquée herself dug deep into the archives, so the book includes many never-seen-before photographs and documents, alongside her own short, poetic statements. The main chapters focus on the performances (1974-2017), the stories of Madame and It (1982-1995) and the ‘ongoing archives’ series. Besides seminal texts by the late acclaimed art critic Jean Fisher (Ria Pacquée: Don’t Look Now, about her ‘streetramblings’) and anthropologist Michael Taussig’s In the Desert with Ria Pacquée, about her ‘colour walks’, art historian Antony Hudek wrote Ria Pacquée – Almost There, an introductory text starting with her early days in Antwerp in the 1970s. The book concludes with the artist in her own words. To Be a Pilgrim on the Road is a candid conversation between friend and artist Michael Curran and Ria Pacquée about her video works.
