2020. Publication by AAIR Antwerpen.

This book is published following the residencies of Valentin Cernat, Pierre Coric, Lola Daels, Maxim Ryckaerts, Eva van Tongeren at AAIR, Antwerp in 2019, which took place in the framework of STRT Kit, a one-year development programme for artists. STRT Kit is an initiative of AAIR in collaboration with Kunsthal Extra City, Antwerp and HART magazine.

LOLA DAELS asked artist Sine Van Menxel to interpret a series of soapstones, resulting in photograms that mirror her working method by turning the sculptures’ positive volume into a negative void.

Lola Prima Donna Daels °1990, Brussel (BE) represented by Kusseneers Gallery, Brussels. Currently in residency @level five Brussels.



Lola Prima Donna Daels (°1990) is a Brussels based artist, who mostly creates site specific and installation art.  Her practice derives from long processes of research in which she investigates analytical and critical inquiries about ecological, environmental and socio-political issues. At every place she visits, Lola collects objects and materials that she reshapes  and integrates into new contexts. 

Daels obtained her master’s 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), Cité Internationale des Arts (FR). Her work was shown at Bozar (BE), Extracity Kunsthal (BE), Deegar Platform (IR), the African Art Fair in Marrakech (MA) and many more. She was selected to participate at the fifth edition of STRT Kit, a one-year development program for artists in Antwerp.  

Her interest in urban complexities led to the collaboration with architect Sebastiaan Willemen, with who she founded chépas collective. She’s is a member of Level Five, an artistic ecology in Brussels, Belgium. Curruntly she’s represented by Kusseneers Gallery, Brussels.
