Running Around - Ria Pacquée, 2015

In this absurdist take on an 'Urban Trail' Ria Pacquée drifts through her hometown Antwerp while intermittently encircling various objects and structures she encounters. A run down kiosk, an artificial hill with a playground slide, a battered metal curb, a hexagonal flowerpot, a concrete ping pong table; all of which would easily disappear in the dense fabric of the urban environment. With her act Pacqée forces the viewer to closely observe, what would have otherwise been neglected. In this process a spectre appears in the banal.
