Originally titled in French as La Promenade, this piece by Belgian artist Dirk De Keyzer is one of three works located in the courtyards of Westgate. Capturing and reinterpreting snapshots of our everyday life, De Keyzer’s art is characterised by a subtle humour that makes us smile. This is, in part, achieved by distorting and exaggerating the human figures such that they take on the feel of caricatures.

Here, a woman, in a rather stiff posture, is led by her sprightly dog during their walk. Do we sometimes love our pets so much that they drive our lives?
