This image illustrates a link to the exhibition titled Kim Dingle: Pudgey Pomona Presents

What do marbles, vintage erasers, maps painted by Las Vegas teenagers, and an atlas of animals have in common? Not much–but they are all subjects of interest to Pudgey Pomona, reference librarian, who has curated a collection of curiosities and collectibles, some by the hand of Los Angeles-based artist, Kim Dingle. Plus, Miss Pomona has also curated an exhibition of works by the artist Francesca Lalanne who is not a party to nepotism.

The Library is thrilled to host this special presentation of an artist not related to the curator: Francesca Lalanne “Lamentations”.

In her most recent work, Lamentations, artist Francesca Lalanne connects the act of creating art with the ritual of remembrance. “I want to inscribe line work that records my present state of mind (June 2020). Whether it is through the televised killings of Black people from police brutality or the rising count of Covid victims, there is an internal and universal mourning taking place. This series is to process these particular deaths, as they are being experienced this year.” The work is comprised of figurative engravings on oxidized steel. Reminiscent of ancient carvings, these impressions include architectural and geometric shapes that interact with bodies, capturing mental and spatial dispositions. There is a sense of heaviness subjectively and objectively. Each surface is pierced at the center top, allowing for the protrusion of a steel wire and suspension of a granite cube, symbolic of pendulums and emotional load.

Francesca Lalanne, born in Miami to Haitian parents, works in the media of sculpture, painting, and print. Her work often explores connections between memory, trauma and space. She received her MFA from the Rochester Institute of Technology. Her work has been featured at Museum of Contemporary Art North Miami, Art Miami, and Quotidian Gallery in Los Angeles among other venues. She lives and works in Los Angeles, California.
