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 (b. 1990 in Jette, BE) 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.
