WHY FOL­LOW?

We have a sneak­ing sus­pi­cion that all the se­crets of the uni­verse are lo­cated on Loli’s In­sta­gram feed. Like a worm­hole to an­other galaxy (im­ages of space fea­ture heav­ily in her work), these “metapsychedelic” col­lages in­stantly cap­ture the imag­i­na­tion and carry you off to a far­away place (al­though, in re­al­ity, you’re just an­other per­son on the train en­grossed with their smart­phone).

WHAT TO EX­PECT?

Sur­real col­lages with a retro feel. Loli works with vintage im­ages to de­vise spell­bind­ing (and of­ten funny) com­po­si­tions: gi­ant ice cream cones tak­ing over a city sky­line; planet Earth in a toaster; a pair of ball­room dancers whose bod­ies dis­solve into stars. It’s spaced-out, in a good way.
