About a week after, Shia LaBeouf had a meltdown in a Jerry’s Deli over french fries (understandable) and got kicked out, he has announced that he’s going away from civilization for a month. No, Shia is not checking himself into anger management rehab. Shia will be art-ing.
Shia’s last contribution to the world of art, He Will Not Divide Us, didn’t exactly turn out the way he wanted it to. It was supposed to last for Jabba the Trump’s entire first term, but the Museum of the Moving Image in Queens, NY shut it down, and after making a quick pit stop in New Mexico, it ended up outside of the U.S. in Liverpool. Its website was also hacked this week. Shia and his art partners, Nastja Rönkkö and Luke Turner, are trying the art thing again, and this time, the only way it would fail is if he couldn’t control his craving for french fries and ran off in search of some.
Beginning today, Shia and co. will stay in separate cabins somewhere in Lapland, Finland, away from other people. They’re calling that shit #ALONETOGETHER. A re-creation of the cabin they’re living in has been set up at the Kiasma museum in Helsinki. Visitors to the exhibit can also text with Shia, Nastja and Luke. Shia and co. can text back to the visitors, but they can’t text each other.
A livestream of the texts can be seen on this site.
So let’s get this mess straight, for a full month, Shia is never going to leave his (temporary) house and will spend his days texting, sleeping, staring at walls, farting, fapping, eating and shitting? What Shia calls HIGH ART, some of us call “our lives.” Who knew that I’ve been a true artist this entire time! I’m practically the fucking Picasso of that art form.
