Loup Lejeune & Lola Daels
From January 15th to February 11th, 2023

EXHIBITION CONCEPT by Yuna Mathieu-Chovet

Loup Lejeune develops a body of work that takes the form of serigraphies, sculptures and installations. He is interested in the physical properties of the materials he experiments with. In screen printing, he uses different mineral and organic bodies to replace ink, such as plant extracts, blood, oil, thus underlining the balance of power between nature and culture.

The works of Lola Daels are part of a process of research and study of different socio-economic contexts and craft practices. Her pieces, essentially in situ, address issues such as desertification or greenhouse gas emissions, which she appropriates through ancient practices like the technique of granito, rocaille or seedbombing.

These two artists, through ancestral materials or ancient practices, question our relationship as human beings to the living, to the land where we were born and to its resources that we are depleting, considering our future in the light of the past.
