Lola Keyezua, born in 1988, in Luanda, Angola, graduated from the Royal Academy of Arts in The Hague in 2014. One month after her graduation her robotic installation FACTICIUS was shown during the Museumnacht Den Haag in 2014 at the Dutch Parliament. By the end of 2014 Lola moved to Berlin, in May 2015 she moved back to the country where she was born, Angola and stayed there for 5 years. Lola returned to Luanda, where she lived until to 2019. This offered her the opportunity to research black identity and the black body. The artist has explored several media through the years, such as sculptures, photography, painting and installations in a series of artworks which carefully exhibited Keyezua’s emotions and influences inspired by life in Angola/Africa. The female body continues to be the start of her creative process as a source of inspiration, seeking to portrait pain and her very own version of a female revolution.
