Lola Gonzàlez is an emerging French visual artist, who works mainly with video and performance. Lola places collaboration at the center of her creative process, nourishing her work with emotions prompted during group-led interventions. Her apparently simple videos and performances engage in a deep exploration of the reality of what we see – or think that we see. Her work reflects the complicity between the artist and a group (her friends, members of her family, or strangers she met a few weeks before), who improvise as actors for a moment – truly time-based art.
She is rapidly rising in the French contemporary arts scene and has just been awarded the prestigious Meurice Prize, specifically for a project she’s developing with France Los Angeles Exchange (FLAX) on Grand Park, Los Angeles, in July 2017.
She graduated from the Lyon School of Fine Arts in 2012. Since then, she has shown her works at Centre Pompidou (Hors-Pistes Festival), at Salon de Montrouge, at Treize, at La Galerie/ Noisy-le-sec art center, at Palais de Tokyo, at Le Magasin, Grenoble and at IAC Villeurbanne during the Lyon Biennale. In 2016, she has presented two performances at Palais de Tokyo, Le Plateau, Fond Régional d’Art Contemporain, her first solo show at Marcelle Alix Galerie and she took part in a group show at Passerelle, Centre d’Art Contemporain Brest. She is a resident of the Pavillon, the residency program of Palais de Tokyo in Paris and she recently opened a major solo exhibition at Credac, Ivry, France.
About Y CROIRE her video installation
Several fixed shots of the forest is screened on a wall. Kevin gets closer and looks at the landscape. Paul arrives, placing himself next to Kevin and observes. An abstract conversation starts, a struggle between Kevin who believes and Paul who no longer believes.
