Born in 1990 – Belgium
Lives and works in Brussels, Belgium
Lola Daels is a Brussels based artist. Leaving from found objects,
she poses critical inquiries about the ecological and socio-political situation. By reshaping and
integrating her relics into new contexts she questions the concept of authenticity in our globalizing society. She has exponentially gravitated towards researching the human impact from an ecological preoccupation. She works site-specifically, both in research scope as well as in execution.
Daels obtained her master degree in visual arts in 2014 at Luca School of Arts, Brussels. She has been part of several residency programs such as EKWC (NL), Kooshk recidency (IR) and Cité Internationale des Arts (FR). Her work was shown at Bozar (BE), Extracity Kunsthal (BE), Deegar Platform (IR), Art Sonje Center Seoul (KR) and many more. Her interest in urban complexities led to the collaboration with architect and urbanist Sebastiaan Willemen. She’s is a member of Level Five artistic ecology in Brussels. Currently she’s represented by Kusseneers Gallery, Brussels.
