Lola Prima Donna Daels (°1990) is a Brussels based artist, working both in collective as individual. Daels mostly creates site specific installations, which derive from long processes of researching, testing and feeling. While searching to create tension with the context, her work can take any shape and place that it needs.
During the last years, Daels was part of multiple residency programs. From every place that she visites, Lola Daels collects materials. She reshapes them and integrates them into new contexts. Doing so, she poses analytical and critical inquiries about ecological, environmental and socio-political issues from it’s surrounding reality.
As she started leaving the museal context, her interest in urban complexities led to the collaboration with architect Sebastiaan Willemen, with who she founded chépas collective. Inspired by marginal spaces they create interven- tions and performances in public space as well as in white cubes. Their work balances between poetry and criticism, rationalism and humour, activism and art, between now and the future.
