From the Bed to the Lab: Lala’s upcoming exhibition.

31 Oct

Measure

Lala was spotted this week in Paris’ 11th district measuring the walls of Düo, where she’s due to show her work December 11th-13th.  Lala’s exhibition “From the Bed to the Lab” will be a retrospective look at her time in Paris: how the city helped her find her way down the rabbit hole we now call the Lala World.  The three series of paintings and installations Lala has chosen for the exhibition illustrate a persisting struggle to find a place of her own in the world.

“I’ve come to the conclusion that life it just one big do-it-yourself project.  Since that realization, I see the possibilities are endless.  That’s what this exhibition is about.”

Since Lala’s arrival in Paris, she has created her own world, composed of fact-fiction blog entries, paintings, videos and music.  “From the Bed to the Lab” will be Lala Drona’s first solo gallery exhibition in Paris to present this work.  The art pieces are to be accompanied by performances and DJ’s during the night hours (TBA).  Check Lala Drona’s facebook page and stay updated on details about the most anticipated Lala event of the year.

“Retouching is the new censorship,” says Lala

5 Oct

Last night before Paris’ Nuit Blanche (an artistic event that lasts all night once a year) Lala Drona posted a behind the scenes look at the preparation for her performance “Don’t Retouch This.”

Internet Drones everywhere started buzzing and met up with Lala later that night for the debut of the artistic campaign.  She was spotted around Paris asking passer-byes to hold a sign saying “don’t retouch this” over a part of their body they didn’t think was perfect.  The idea was to denounce the unobtainable ideal of perfection the media sells…and to accept ourselves the way we are.

Critics noticed that Lala held the sign in front of her chest almost the entire night.  “Lala has been struggling with the idea of perfection in our society since her breast reconstruction.  This is a part of her journey to self-acceptance,” states Kit Feller, New York art critic.

Onlookers were surprised and animated by the performance.  “I want to do this with my friends,” said Florence Sibot, an onlooker at the Nuit Blanche.  “I think she is might be starting a movement here.”  Since last night’s performance, 20 documented #dontretouchthis videos have been published online.  A good start for the campaign.
