Ria Pacquée's Island residence at Middelheimmuseum

On the occasion of the exhibition 'They are looking at us, we are looking at them' Ria Pacquée resides on the islet in the museum park pond during the whole month of June. During that time it will be the exclusive domain of the artist. She crosses the water to concentrate and work. She will observe and perform seemingly small and unobtrusive actions or exercises in the park. The residence offers a unique insight into artistry: the spectator witnesses both the incubation and the elaboration. It is almost as if Ria Pacquée is exhibiting the artist: the thinking artist, the creating artist, the pausing artist... It is a way to experience and show her artistry and to investigate her artistic identity. Pacquée creates smaller and larger works on the islet, which grow organically from her stay. She marks each day with a memento which she leaves behind in one of 30 niches in a wall that was built on the islet. At the end of the month, when the wall is completely filled, the artist disappears from view and spectators will be allowed to enter the islet.

Eilandresidentie Ria Paquée in het Middelheimmuseum

Met de tentoonstelling 'They are looking at us, we are looking at them' creëert de Belgische kunstenares Ria Pacquée nieuwe performances en installaties. Je kan haar heel de maand juni live aan het werk zien op het eilandje in de parkvijver. Vanuit de sculpturale installatie 'While dogs bark, fish piss and birds fly, the artist blends into the scenery' bedenkt en voert ze acties uit. Zij steekt het water over om zich te concentreren en te werken. Soms kan het lijken alsof er niet veel gebeurt, maar tegelijk biedt het een unieke inkijk in het kunstenaarschap: kunstenaars creëren niet uit het niets, sommige ideeën sluimeren jaren onder de oppervlakte tot ze plots in een werk resulteren. De toeschouwer is getuige van zowel de incubatie als de actie. Het is bijna alsof Ria Pacquée de kunstenaar tentoon stelt: de denkende kunstenaar, de creërende kunstenaar, de pauzerende kunstenaar… Het is een manier om haar kunstenaarschap te beleven en te tonen, en haar artistieke identiteit te onderzoeken. In de muur op het eiland zitten 30 nissen, voor de 30 dagen van de maand juni. Iedere junidag markeert ze met een aandenken in een nis. Als de muur gevuld is, verdwijnt de kunstenaar uit beeld. Daarna kunnen toeschouwers het eilandje betreden.
