Preview before official release

22 May

Lala Drona releases a preview before the finishing touches on her newest piece.  The piece discovered in the video “Lala in La-la Land” did in fact have a connection to her Sexe Sans Sex series.  Lala, after revisiting some of her old art work, decides to reanimate an old idea by juxtaposing text with art.  Below you will find the song lyrics “My Neck, My Back” by KHIA superimposed on the image of a baby-doll.

Caught! Into the rabbit-hole she goes…

22 Mar

Lala in La-la-landAs all you Drones know, Lala has locked herself up in her Paris home for the past week, causing many to worry about her mental stability and personal safety.  A video has surfaced of her painting a doll in a child-like style and chanting her own name.  Is this part of her Sexe sans Sex series, or has she fallen into a bizarre and perhaps damaging rabbit-hole?

The journalist who uploaded the video said that the reason (s)he invaded the privacy of the artist was “to make sure Lala was okay, and not a danger to herself or others…and also to reassure the authorities and fellow Drones of this.”

Based on a Fact questions how the doll Lala is painting fits into her overall Sexe sans Sex series.  Is this proof that Lala has really lost it?  Since this is the first time someone has documented Lala during the act of creation, we’re not sure if this proves mental instability or  represents an eccentric artistic process.  After some investigation, Based on a Fact found that “lala” means “doll” in Polish.  Perhaps it’s a stretch, or perhaps this proves a method behind her madness.

Lala herself has yet to respond to the breach of privacy, but in past interviews, she has commented on the topic.  “In our technologically advanced world, we’re all living in public.  It’s just where we’re heading.  Whether it means we are heading towards an Orwellian dystopia or a more ethical society; we don’t know yet.  Either way, we have a choice in front of us: embrace it or hide from it” (L.D. Times interview, 2013).

Based on a fact.
