Looks like Lala’s beginning a new series, the idea “sex without sex.”   Preview of this project in development.

Lala Drives Out New Neighbor!

1 Apr

Reenactment: Lala spraying neighbor in the face.

Recently neighbors have been saying that Lala has become somewhat of a recluse.    We’ve seen time and time again that Lala will go at any lengths to protect her private life,  however on March 31st Lala commits an act that questions her overall mental stability.

Claire DuMont, Lala’s new neighbor, was moving into her home in the 94 when she realized she was short a few chairs for a house-warming party.  She knocked on her neighbor’s door to ask if they had any extra chairs when she received a very hostile welcome to the area.  “All I remember is a can of spray paint in my face,” she states in an interview with 94 reporters.  “If it weren’t for my glasses, I could be blind.  I ran into my apartment and called the 94 authorities.”

When Lala is questioned about the events, she seems a bit too blasé about the ordeal. When asked to replace DuMont’s glasses, she responds, “…She’s okay.  And it was transparent paint.”  Natalia Strak, Lala’s lawyer comes to her defense.  The official statement reading that Lala was defending herself from possible paparazzi attack.  That she had no intention of spraying any innocent person in the face.

Strak says that Lala will be let off with a slap on the wrist, but that the continued Lala calamity has revealed itself as a cry for help.  A public statement has been released stating Lala will be attending therapy sessions at Tableau Vierge, a rehabilitation center for artists sliding off their rocker.

Interview: Lala Drona

17 Mar

Between projects and after calamity, Lala agrees to an interview with Kathy Walder, journalist from the LD Times.

K:  So Lala, how is Paris treating you?

LD:  There’s good people, bad people.  Just like everywhere, really.

K:  Any specific exhibitions going on right now in Paris that you’d like to comment on?

LD:  Sometimes I feel like the entire contemporary art scene is a total mess, but I’m sure that’s what many contemporaries thought of their time.  Besides that, I’m looking forward to going to an exhibition at the Maison Rouge that is displaying only artists “under the influence.”  I think it sounds pretty tubular.  The Dinosaur exhibition at the History Museum—not good.  It was three floors of stuffed exotic animals and I couldn’t actually tell if the animals were taxidermies or not.  I was in some bizarre zoo graveyard, looking at specimens.  Your kids might cry.  Don’t go.

K:  What about the “setbacks” you’ve recently been experiencing?

LD:   Oh you mean breaking my face…or being an art school reject?  Or maybe that I’m in the middle of a cultural mecca where it seems like the only option for studying art is if it’s applied.  Design.  It’s fine and all, it’s just my objective is a bit different from the applied arts.  I already have a job, a way to eat.  That’s not what I’m searching for.

K:   And are you okay after the accident?  I mean, everything looks good.

LD:  (laughs) Yeah, I’m fantastic.  I mean, the way I see it, every artist has an ego.  Maybe mine needed to be kicked down a notch (mumbles) my art school rejection letter helped with that.  Through this whole experience, I’ve realized that I find freedom in the loss of vanity.  Accidents are blessings.  I felt like I was finally wearing who I am, on my face, for the very first time.

K:   And what now?  No art school, and you’ve missed deadlines for admissions, not to mention your visa is running out.  Any plans to accept defeat and move on to another country?

LD: This place doesn’t want me, fine. I like a challenge.  I’m staying until I’m done here.

Has Lala Gone Too Far?: comment on Lala’s tag over celebrity street artist

9 Dec

After seeing Lala’s tag over Stik’s piece, I was pissed.  I thought,  she approves this message?  Who is she to approve STIK’S message?  I was super raged, and then I remembered that I really didn’t know what Stik’s message was.

I think Lala is reminding people that we need to ask questions.  We cannot keep taking our surroundings for granted.  Because of her tag, which is still an eye sore (although, a necessary one), I was pushed to research the once homeless street artist and read up on his stick people (not stickmen according to an interview with the Sabotage Times).  Now I have a completely different view of these stick people, and another appreciation for street artists of all kinds.
