On the outside looking in: Lala jail letter released

5 Sep

Jail letter released

Lala Drona was released from Paris Art Prison at 10am last Monday morning.  Since, the artist has refused to talk about her prison experience, in turn raising the interest of investigative journalists everywhere.

The PAP mailroom was infiltrated by an unknown masked perpetrator last Sunday and many of Lala Drona’s records were made public. Lala's mail The documents made public consist of an expedited mail list and a personal letter from Lala to Shutupi.  The records show that Lala wrote to Shutupi twenty-five days out of thirty in art prison. The letter exposes a relationship perhaps more intimate than previously assumed between the photographer and the artist.  It reads, “So I count.  I count the hours in every day.  I count every time you cross my mind and I count the days until we can start our projects again.”  Lala's letter to Shutupi

Lala also admits her true feelings about the Art Guild in this letter, perhaps plotting against the authority that put her away.  She writes, “…revenge is a dish best served cold.” Names on the mail list record also include Pancho Panoptes, Fred le Chevalier and Lans Thorne, strangely all of whom are existing members of the Art Guild.  If Lala is plotting against the Art Guild, why would she write to its members?  Perhaps their friendship transcends her deep seeded hostility towards the organization.  Or perhaps it is part of a grand scheme to bring down the institution.  Stay tuned to read about what happens next in the world of Lala Drona.
