Never Too Old To Cut The Banana When Erected is Lola Keyezua’s (1988, Angola) first solo exhibition at our gallery. After showing one of the photographs in our group exhibition The Great Photography Special, last year, we decided to present the whole series of ‘Never Too Old To Cut The Banana When Erected’ in the gallery.
After graduating at the Royal Academy in The Hague in 2014, Keyezua returned to Luanda, where she lived from 2015 to 2019. This offered her the opportunity to research black identity and the black body. In most of her artwork she uses the female body as the most important ‘sound’ in her voice as an artist.
With the photographic series ‘Never Too Old To Cut The Banana When Erected’ Keyezua is exploring the sexuality of the elderly by focusing on social, cultural and religious influences. This series visualizes the mental health consequences for elders that continue to develop their sexuality. Because of the stigma associated with to their sexuality, secret pleasures are discovered in everyday life objects.
