To be served: Lala Laboratory Creations

15 Nov

To be served at FROM THE BED TO THE LABLala works with Düo and the local Paris Department of Chemistry to create a binary concoction of food and drink to be served at her three-day exhibition From the Bed to the Lab.  Together, they have created a collection of duo-aperitifs to mirror the colors and theme of Lala Drona’s paintings. Cocktail concoctionsA team of chemists and food critics have altered the elements of the cuisine in hopes of producing mind-altering effects.  Drink title branstormOnline forums question the safety of these secret ingredients, but Lala Drona has gone on record stating that there are neither toxic nor illegal chemicals in her laboratory creations.  With titles such as “Muse Serum” and “Mile-high Club,” Lala says that the power of suggestion will be enough to send her guests into Lala-Land.

With just over three weeks left before opening night, Lala rushes to put the finishing touches on her paintings and event plans.  Mile-highclub“It’s a lot of work,” Lala says, “but I’m excited to open my universe to the public.”  Only time will tell if the public is ready to receive Lala’s world.

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.

Convicted of Muse Abuse

11 Jul

Lala arrestedDo not pass go, do not collect two-hundred dollars.  News just released of Lala Drona trespassing onto private property while faking a personal tour of the Lala Laboratory.  The artist invited journalists to her underground layer to disprove accusations of muse abuse and torture.  However, the property Lala was showing was a front to deflect the media from her real underground layer.  Embarrassingly enough, the authorities caught Lala in the act (as you can see at the end of the tour video) and arrested her on the spot.  She is rumored to be held on seven accounts of muse abuse and could be in prison for up to two months before she is allowed to post bail.  The media are working with the authorities to unearth the real location of the Lala Laboratory.

Based on a Fact will be the first to let all of you Drones know when Lala leaves the Slammer, but until then, the website will be frozen until all litigations on such a matter are resolved.

From Paris to Denver

24 Apr

From Paris to Colorado          Sources at Air France have confirmed that Lala Drona will be returning home to the mile-high city in one week’s time.  To the disappointment of Drones everywhere, Lala does not plan to participate in gallery showings nor plans to make appearances at any high-society events.  An interview with the L.D. Times states that the artist is in fact returning to the US for medical reasons.

As Drones everywhere know, Lala’s medical past has been a source of inspiration for her art.  In the L.D. Times article, she speaks about plans for a future series called Cyborgs Have More Fun which like her ongoing Breast Series is inspired by bodily alterations.  “The reconstruction of her breast at such an early age called for a reformation of her entire world view,” states Valerie Cutter, head child psychologist at the University of Minnesota.  “She finds comfort in modification, in change.  It’s no wonder she’s attracted to the idea of cyborg.”

With her breast reconstruction trauma far behind her, Lala has big plans for her next bodily modification. Friedrich Strasse, Events Coordinator for the Drones Research Program-Berlin states that Lala has been having hand and wrist issues for years, often interfering with her work.

“We used to joke about her being the first artist with a mechanical hand.  I never thought she’d actually do it!” Sources say Lala plans to meet with an American team of medical specialists and designers to create a prosthetic for Lala’s hand.

In online forums, Drones discuss Lala’s future plans for hand modification, wary of the effects it may have on her art.  Will the art still be hers, or will her style change?  When will the project be underway, and is the project in connection to the Lala Laboratory?  Drones everywhere are on the lookout for Lala in Colorado, trying to catch a glimpse of the artist in her natural habitat.
