Karolien Chromiak was invited by Kunsthal Gent to organise an event around her project 'to glitch the home (to heal)'. She created a temporary intervention, a real-life shelter with a digital skin, in which she and co-host Gary Farrelly hosted an associative journey through the research of the project.

During this journey they met my most recent work: soapstones and made a movie about it. You can watch it here.

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.
