A gathering of anti-Trump, which would last four years: it was the wild dream of Shia LaBeouf and the collective he has formed with artists Nastja Säde Rönkkö and Luke Turner. The friends had moved to New York a camera before which relays of protesters since Friday, January 20, to coincide with the investiture of Donald Trump. Whatever the weather, all those who wish are invited to put themselves in front of the lens to decide how the sentence proposed by the actor: “He will not divide us” (we don’t share).
Since the launch of the device deployed in a corner of the museum of the image (Museum of the Moving Image) of the district of Queens, the player preview in the Wall Street: money never sleeps (2010), Fury (2014) or the three parts of Transformers, spends the most of his time. Named “He will not divide us”, this creation is a happening of the collective LaBeouf, Rönkkö & Turner, in the tradition of their previous projects, most of which included Shia LaBeouf in a role or another.
The public is simply “invited to say the words “He Will Not Divide Us” looking at camera”, explains the collective on the site dedicated to the event, www.hewillnotdivide.us. The place is “open to all” and the camera will be filming without respite for four years during, the term of office of the president Donald Trump, the content being broadcasted on the site. Repeat this slogan at infinity “is a demonstration of resistance or insistence, opposition, or optimism, guided by the spirit of each participant and the community,” explain the artists.
Whatever the weather, participants, who have sometimes reached a hundred, were facing the camera, among them Shia LaBeouf, but also the actor Jaden Smith. Requested by the AFP, LaBeouf refused to speak and justified: “I think I’ve already said everything I could say.”
The participants are mostly young people, including many teenagers who live in the area. “That’s good, because we’re the generation that comes. It is our opinion that counts now”, considers Sarah Elhouti, a high school student of 17 years old, coming for the third time.
