Born in 1997 in Douala, Cameroon

Laura Tolen grew up in Douala, Cameroon, before enrolling at the Beaux-Arts de Paris where she graduated in 2020. The same year, she participated in the collective exhibition ArtuElles Interférences at Galerie Annie Kadji in Douala. Her texts and drawings were featured in several publications. She works on the construction and transmission of memory that she approaches through her favourite media, drawing and oil paints. From family pictures or photographs she takes herself, she reconstructs in her drawings a family history half-real, half-fictional, juxtaposing in the same space locations and characters that never met in real life. This reconstruction of memories and past events questions objectivity and the reliability of memory.
