Experiment Exposed: The many faces

5 Jul

Muse Experiment ExposedScreaming.  Laughing.  Machines whirring, and Lala’s face appearing on walls.  How do you feel about Lala in this current moment? What do you hear in this current moment?  What do you see in this current moment?

These were three questions asked after a reported muse experiment took place in Lala Drona’s art laboratory.  Just two weeks after the “Drones gone rogue” scandal, Drone Jack and Drone Ember release a shocking account of one of the muse experiments taking place in the Lala Laboratory.  Screen Shot 2017-07-05 at 06.29.33.pngDrone Ember recounts being “called upon” for one of Lala Drona’s art experiments.  After being paired up with another Drone (Drone Jack, whom opens the video with a speech) the two are led into the deepest rooms of the art laboratory.   Here, the two Drones aid in Lala’s strange inspiration extraction tactics.


This story certainly gives us much desired information about the inner workings of the laboratory and its experiments.  Drone EmberHowever, what type of inspiration extracted from the experiment, and how Lala will apply it to her art pieces has yet to be revealed.  Lala’s followers wait with anticipation for the release of the art piece inspired by this experiment, in order to gain more insight to the artist’s process, and to the inner workings of the experiments.

Thank you to Drone Jack and Drone Ember for their bravery and candor.

When the cat’s away, the mice will play!

Lala Drona’s departure from Paris to Beijing marks the third occasion in which she has left a community of Drones behind.  Ms. Drona leaves each group of Drones with a specific set of instructions and regulations to follow while conducting their art and muse experiments.   However, without much oversight, it was just a matter of time before the Drones would start to take over.

In the name of art, two Drones have gone rogue, continuing their research and conducting art experiments unsanctioned by the Lala.  Drone Fletcher and Drone Tinas have implicated themselves in an online confession and apology, revealing the circumstances of their digression.

Has Lala lost control over her Drone franchises?  Will this video spark a trend in Drone digression?  Lala has got her hands quite full recruiting Eastern Drones in Beijing…will she lose control over her Western partners?

LEAKED: Ms. Drona’s Glamour Macabre

19 Mar

gray series.png

Over the past week, a fog of grey has been hovering over art media websites, revealing a series of achromatic paintings.  Lala Drona’s latest work, what some journalists are calling “Glamour Macabre” was leaked, and has taken the internet by storm.

Before her departure to Beijing, China, Lala Drona put on a private exhibition with selected guests from the art world.  The exhibition was by appointment at the art factory Le Lavoir, and despite prohibiting the use of smart phones and cameras, photos of her work were leaked.

The photos were leaked without description, therefore the titles and sizes of the pieces still remain unknown.  One thing that is apparent is that Ms. Drona has decided to dive into shades of grey.  We first saw this choice of color in her triptych Je suis la fin qui justifie les moyens (I am the end that justifies the means) back in 2015 during the collective exhibition Je suis…   Color psychology theorises that grey is “being neither black nor white, it is the transition between two non-colors.”  Perhaps the color gray represents a transition in her work.
There may be negative consequences to the leak as many of the pieces were meant to be kept secret before her next public exhibition. Now, Lala Drona may have got herself into hot water with her Chinese investors.

In other news, Lala Drona has opened Drone Video submissions, so if you’re interested in becoming a Drone, please visit:  https://www.facebook.com/events/388488554868772/?notif_t=plan_reminder&notif_id=1489931961293145

Lala’s Latest Performance Art

19 Feb

Photos by Yegan Mazandarani (Agence Sauvage)

Lala has sent shockwaves through internet video platforms after the release of her video titled “Lala and Drone #1’s Latest Performance.” Despite media pressure, she continues to plea the fifth when asked to comment on the performance’s legitimacy.

f1000022The video begins with photographer Yegan Mazandarani shooting Lala Drona and Drone #1 in their classic black Drone attire and sunglasses. An instrumental version of “We found love” plays in the background as the camera follows the frantic scene into Paris’ Town Hall.  For the main event of the performance, Lala Drona and Drone #1, stand in front of the French authorities in order to merge their assets and forge an alliance in legal matrimony.  After a quick ceremony (and a very convincing kiss) the couple move on to the second act of the performance: signing the documents that legalize their union.  Next, the couple exit their performance to the song “Young, wild and free.”

But did they really get legally married?  As we recall, Drone #1 and Lala Drona hf1020018ave a rocky past.  His breach in Drone Code resulted in his exile from the Lala World,
followed by the gruesome Drone-Muse experiment which inspired Lala Drona’s tryptic Je suis la fin qui justifie les moyens (I am the end that justifies the means).  Since then, Drone #1 underwent a new Drone Reprogramming Procedure, and hasn’t left Lala’s side ever since.  Perhaps Lala has forgiven Drone #1, and this alliance is a reconciliation of all past indiscretions?  This could be the reason why the song “I want you back” by Micheal Jackson also plays in the video.

No sources have come forward in order to debunk the supposed marriage. However, another possibility could be that Lala Drona and Drone #1 legitimately married for art’s sake.  Perhaps the duo is aligning in order to critique the traditional act of marriage as “performance.”

Journalists continue to look for answers, however the officials at Town Hall will not speak to whether or not the wedding was legitimate.  It is possible that Lala could have pulled a few strings in order to create some cheap internet buzz.  Sooner or later, the truth will reveal itself.

Tarot Reads DEATH: Lala plans funeral arrangement.

11 Aug

title photo funeral plans-001Lala Drona has reported trouble sleeping and vivid nightmares during her spiritual walkabout through the Western United States.  Many dreams end in her death, or the death of another at her own hand.

DSC_0754.JPGWhile perusing along the rusted streets of Sedona, Arizona, Lala Drona stumbled upon a very familiar looking building.  A sudden rush of déjà vu came over her.  The font of the letters on the glass, and the rusted color on the exterior of the shop called to her.  Lala’s dream the night before involved a psychic warning her of imminent death, and the shop in front of her was the spitting image of the shop in her dream.
Tarot readingLala entered and smelled the same nagchampa lavender candle that burned in the dream the night before. She sat on the paisley printed cushions in the room and waited as Madame Bonnie, the same psychic from her dream entered into the room.  Reliving the scene, Lala followed her into a hidden room in the back.

Lala answered Madame Bonnie’s question before she had time to answer it.  “Yes, this is my first tarot reading,” she said.
Madame Bonnie looked into Lala’s eyes and squinted. “You are a very sensitive person, aren’t you?  Perhaps some psychic abilities of your own?”  Madame Bonnie took Lala’s hand and read her past life.  “You were a creative…a very sensitive and spiritual woman in your past life.  Your ideas were unusual but intelligent.  There were many people around you that were jealous, and you died early on because of this…somewhere in your twenties.  You are still this woman today, but today people are much more accepting of your ideas.  This is the time you were meant to live in, so now you are living out the life she didn’t get the chance to.”

Madame Bonnie asked Lala to shuffle the cards, and laid them down on the table in a celtic cross fashion.  Lala anticipated the death card.  As soon as Madame Bonnie laid it down, she said, “Are you dealing with death at the moment, or anything resembling death?”Tarot guide

Lala wanted to tell Madame Bonnie of how she lived her life…of how she intentionally confronted death daily, how she called upon death  everyday in order to live life well.  To appreciate the things she had and to extract drive from it.  However, Lala responded, “No.”
“Many people fear the death card, but it can be a very positive card.  It signifies change, and in your case an extreme change in your career…the death of one thing and the birth of another.  I read that you will soon receive the type of recognition that you have been searching for in your career.”  Lala thought of her projects, the book she’d been writing and her new art piece to be released in an exhibition in October.

Immediately after, Lala called a video
meeting with several Drones and Muses to plan her funeral arrangements.  An open casket funeral displaying the body of the artist covered in flowers, only the breasts and face exposed.  As the artist has vowed to only show her breasts in her paintings, she has denied several prominent photographers her image.  The funeral will be the sole moment in the artist’s life that the public will see her breasts “dans la vie réelle.”  The installation is what Lala Drona likes to call her “final piece.”
Lala explained the piece to Based On a Fact:
“I’m not planning on going anywhere now, but I would like my life’s work to finish with something beautiful and intentional.  As Marina Abramovic said You cannot choreograph death, but you can choreograph your funeral.”

EXPLOSION!: Lala Laboratory, no more.

Authorities scramble to find the culprits behind the Lala Laboratory bombing.

Three days ago, Lala was tried in court and forced to disclose the locationMuse sweatshop. of her secret underground laboratory. Courts issued a warrant permitting the Art Guild to search the laboratory premises where they found
incriminating evidence of Lala’s unethical, not to mention illegal, art and inspiration experiments on Muses.

Yesterday, the building was evacuated, leaving approximately 70 Muses and Drones homeless.  Authorities say that Lala was not found inside the laboratory during the sting operation.  However, it turns out that during the event, Lala Drona and her selected entourage (Drone #1, DJ Mafe and Drone Olchin) went 100_0697-300x225into hiding in a secret wing of the laboratory, one that does not appear in Lala Laboratory architectural plans. Le group played a congenial game of poker throughout the night.

At 2am, authorities received word of an explosion in distric 94.  The Lala Laboratory had been bombed.

Drones alerted the authorities that Lala Drona and her entourage were trapped inside.  Six hours later, search and rescue dogs sniffed out the group.  Lala described the event:

“There was a terrible ringing in my ears as I looked for my companions. I maxresdefault.jpgfound DJ Mafe first, who told me that Drone Olchin and Drone #1 were trapped behind a door wedged shut by a large scolding pipe. There was yelling on the other side of the door. The walls were caving in. Mafe and I pushed the pipe up and out of the way, freeing the Drones.” Mafe and Lala Drona obtained 2nd and 3rd degree burns on their hands from the ordeal.

CHINA-ACCIDENT-BLAST

Search and rescue teams successfully removed the group from the rubble at 2:20PM, 12 hours after the bomb had gone off. They are currently being treated at the Paris Plaza Hospital in the 4th arrondissement under 24 hour surveillance, as they are now considered a security threat.

Damages to the lab were irreparable. They include the destruction of all current art projects, Lala’s current manuscript, and administrative material such as gallery contracts and invoices for artwork sold. All progress made on Muse inspiration extraction research has been lost.Screen Shot 2016-01-09 at 16.37.46.png

The authorities have asked that you contact them at
drona.lala@gmail.com
if you happen to find any fallout from the explosion (documents or laboratory notebooks). Authorities are specifically interested in finding a small laboratory notebook with the words “Lala Laboratory” written on the cover (photo on left).  The contents of this notebook are considered to be highly dangerous and the notebook is thought to play a crucial part in solving the laboratory bombing case.

Acrylic to ink: Lala quits on the art world

15 Dec

Lala writes bookLala Drona’s latest art show was cancelled due to “pornographic material.” Lala Drona was scheduled to show her series “Sexe sans Sex” at local Parisian gallery in Momartre, when the gallery owner sent her away after taking just one look at the risqué series. Lala told Paris Paint Magazine that her agent had already sent the material for review by the gallery months ago, and it seemed as if everything was fine. There must have been some sort of confusion, because not 20 minutes after Lala’s arrival, she was seen leaving the gallery with her assistant David, canvases in hand.

Minuet

“Minuit” from series Sexe sans Sex.

The owner of the gallery claimed he was unaware of the painting’s pornographic nature. He finished with, “I myself love the paintings, but my clientele wouldn’t be very happy if they came in with their families and saw [the paintings].”

 

In response to the situation, Lala Drona stated, “The series is Sex without sex. There is no pornography in these images. That’s exactly the point of the series…” She finished the statement by saying that her and the gallery were simply not a good fit, and would probably never work with them again due to artistic differences.

Lala transports canvases            For the moment, Lala Drona does not have additional gallery showings on the horizon. However, the artist told Paris Paint Magazine that she’s taking a step back from the art world in order to write her book about the Lala World. “I’ve already finished the outline and am currently writing the second chapter.” Based on a Fact wonders if the sudden step back from the art world is due to the recent gallery rejection, however Lala Drona assures us that she will continue to paint. “People forget that I’m a fiction writer just as much as I am an artist.  Politics and career pressures have kept me in the gallery sphere since arriving to Paris.  Painting is half of my heart, and of course I will not abandon it, but I’m ready to retreat into my writing again.”

As far as the book goes, Lala Drona is not revealing much about the content, but she has said that she’s writing some sort of origin story. Fans everywhere are on the edge of their seats waiting for the highly anticipated book.   Likewise, Based on a Fact is excited to learn more about the secret life of Lala Drona.

Nominated for Work on Damon’s Head

Lala Drona's head prosthetic earns her a nomination for this year's SDA awards.

Lala Drona’s head prosthetic earns her a nomination for this year’s SDA awards.

In recent news, Lala Drona is claiming her work on Matthew Damon’s head.

Nominations for the bi-annual Screen Development Awards have been announced. Lala Drona, the first female fine artist to be nominated for the award, was selected for her work “The Tree of Life” on Matt Damon’s head in the 2013 film Elysium.

Every two years, the SDA awards artists for advancements in special effects make-up technology. The SDA aims to promote art in special effects make-up in an era where computer generated effects dominates the industry.

However, complaints were filed not more than one hour after Lala Drona received her nomination for the award. Now that the demand for special effects artists has hit a low, it seems that only major players in the industry are able to stay afloat. Since Lala Drona’s piece “The Tree of Life” was a product of the Lala Laboratory, some say the SDA should also take action to promote and support independent artists.

One of Lala’s fans is surely not complaining. Matt Damon accompanied Lala Drona to the nomination ceremony, where sources say the duo were reprimanded for incessant giggling and whispering during the announcements. Damon revealed that he decided to keep Lala’s prothetic implant intact under the skin of his skull even after finishing the movie. He’s a big fan of Lala’s and says that he likes the idea of being “a walking piece of art.”
