Academia brings back Paper Goblin

31 Jul

EICAR Rumors to the reason why Lala Drona has been off the radar have finally emerged.  Lala Drona has recently finished a screenwriting/directing workshop at L’école des métiers du cinéma et de la tv / The International Film & TV School – Paris  (EICAR ).  Along with other writers and film directors, she studied the art of screenwriting and directing films.  When asked about her incentive to take the course at the EICAR, she explained that she is researching different media in which  she can bring the universe she is creating to life. However, the artist hasn’t completely dedicated herself to the reel just yet.

On the contrary, the course has inspired her to write the first book based in The Lala World.   “The Lala World is a world rich with details integral to its existence.  It deserves a book before it’s adapted to film,” she said.

While taking the screenwriting course, Lala Drona wrote her first screenplay, a short film called “Tape Monster.”  The screenplay is inspired by the self-portraits she is currently painting for the Je Suis…

exhibition (taking place this October at The Maison des Ensembles) and by the Paper Goblin created in 2013.  “[The film] is about identity.  About accepting your inner monster and collaborating with it in order to create something beautiful.” The film “Tape Monster” is set to be released by the end of September 2015.  Shutupi is rumored to be the director of photography on set, and Lala Drona is said to be working with a prominent figure in the music industry for the soundtrack.

Update on new painting by Lala Drona

Just in, Lala Drona is confirmed to participate in a collective exhibition in Paris this October.  The names of the ten other artists have not yet been released.  The inspiration for the triptych that Lala will create was inspired by her last Lala Laboratory experiment, where she fed one of her Drones to a Muse. Lala Drona has decided to depict the story of how she and the Breast Series are connected and how she has used these images/story to create the artist we know today.

Stay tuned for more information on Lala’s coming exhibition.

Lala Feeds Drone #1 to the Muses

10 Jan

Lala Feeds Drone #1 to the MusesContrary to belief that the Lala Laboratory had been shut down, Lala releases photographs of her latest art experiment: What happens when we feed a Drone to a Muse?

The Lala laboratory is where Lala Drona collaborates with other Drones and conducts controversial research on Muse inspiration extraction.  Lala’s controversial methods have always included Muse abuse, but why has she now decided to turn on her Drones?Close-up

Last month, Lala Drona banished Drone #1 from The Lala World due to a breach of contract:

Drone Code #1: Drones will be loyal to Drones, Drone will be loyal to Lala.

Lala has since filmed herself ceremonially burning Drone #1’s name tag: a symbol of his expulsion from The Lala World.

When Drone #1 abandoned the project, Lala said she would, “feed Drone #1 to the Muses.”  However, in a statement released yesterday morning, Lala stated, “I originally said it as a joke, but then I thought of the possibilities.  What kind of inspiration could be produced if a Muse ate a Drone?  …Drone #1’s banishment would not be in vain.”

Lala is still waiting for conclusive results from the Drone-Muse experiment, but says that results produced so far have both “amazed and shocked” her.  Journalists everywhere are keeping an eye on Drone web forums in hopes of finding reactions to Lala’s new experiment.  Have they accepted the brutal removal of their Drone comrade?  Or has Lala gone too far this time?  Stay tuned as we uncover more secrets from within the Lala Laboratory.

Lala’s new series: egomania or altruism?

After the completion of “The Breast Series” and the series “Sexe Sans Sex,”   Lala presents her upcoming series The Lala World. This series is inspired by the fan blog “Based on a Fact” where fans and journalists release fictionalized updates on the artist’s adventures.  Each article on the blog is written with a bit of truth mixed with lies.  Lala has decided to begin painting this world to create a mirror effect, reality reflecting the virtual and visa-versa.  The artist has decided to unite all forms of her artistic expression (painting, creative writing, photography and video) and is committing artistically to this new universe.

Critiques question if this is simply proof of the artist’s extreme self-involvement.  The first two paintings depict the artist almost religiously: In the piece titled Beecoming Lala she is depicted as queen bee, and in both of the new pieces, there is a halo around Lala’s head.

On the other hand, some critics ask if this new series is a grand gesture of selflessness…an attempt to create an alternate world in which other creative-types can co-exist.  “If the world’s rules don’t fit you, create your own world,” Lala stated during an exhibition interview with L.D. Times.

Whether this is an act of egomania or altruism, Drones and Muses everywhere stand strong, awaiting the artist’s upcoming projects.  What’s to become of Lala Drona this year?  Keep following as she spreads her wings and continues to recruit Drones and Muses from all around the world.

Trouble in Paradise

GoodbyeDrone1

P.E.D.:  Post Exhibition Depression.  This syndrome is a consequence of the rise in cortisone levels and surge of endorphins produced in the body to deal with the stress of the pre-exhibition process.  After the exhibition, artists experience a sort of “come down” from this self-produced drug high.

Life after the exhibition From the Bed to the Lab has been far from easy.  Lala has confirmed that she is suffering from P.E.D. and plans to “relax and spend time with friends and family during this difficult period.”  However, her attempts to lay low have not been successful.

During the exhibition take-down, a fight broke out between Lala Drona and Drone #1.  Lala was reported threatening to “feed Drone #1 to the Muses.”  The reason for the blow out is unknown, but unconfirmed sources say the Drone #1 just never felt at home in The Lala World, and “needed a break for soul searching.”  Lala has released a statement saying that her and Drone #1 would no long be working together due to artistic differences.

When asked if she would be looking for a replacement, Lala said no, and that she would be retiring the number 1.  However, she is not saving the title in hopes that Drone #1 will return.  For the most part, The Lala World has an open door policy.  Collaborators enter and leave as they please.  However, once recruited by the Army of Drones, under contract, one is required to be loyal to Lala and other Drones.  Any form of mission abandonment is a breach of contract and results in a permanent surrender of one’s Drone title.

Journalists have tried interviewing other Drones to hear their opinion on the situation, but all have managed to remain silent.  When questioned about Drone #1’s banishment from Lala World, Lala stated, “Drone #1 in not banished.  He can return, but he can never return as a Drone.”
