Ria Pacquee. Slammm, Ramble, Perform
'Slammm, Ramble, Perform' is Ria Pacquée’s first monograph shedding light on her 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 Jean Fisher and anthropologist Michael Taussig, art historian Antony Hudek wrote an introductory text starting with her early days in Antwerp in the 1970s. The book concludes with the artist in her own words.
