The latest LaBeouf, Rönkkö & Turner collab launched Monday, marking the genre-defying trio's most intimate project to date. American Honey star Shia LaBeouf, alongside his frequent collaborators Nastja Säde Rönkkö and Luke Turner, have invited anyone (you!) to take a peek at the GPS coordinates they've been tweeting via @TheCampaignBook and then kindly offer them a ride:
The project, officially dubbed #TAKEMEANYWHERE, will last for 30 straight days and was commissioned by Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art and The Finnish Institute in London in partnership with VICE. The trio visited the Boulder Museum Sunday as part of this year's MediaLive festival, discussing their work in relation to the event's theme of Corruption.
"I have followed the trio's work closely since I AM NOT FAMOUS ANYMORE and #IAMSORRY, and had added them to the MediaLive invited artist list just prior to #ALLMYMOVIES," Maya Livio, the curator of the festival, told Complex. "Their work offers provocations to the current art discourse through a thoughtful democratization process. By performing both at major institutions and small venues, and continually engaging with audiences on and offline, LaBeouf, Rönkkö & Turner reject hierarchies and embrace popular culture sincerely, without irony or cynicism, which is a rarity in artland."
The real-time progress of the trio's road trip can be tracked via an interactive website or viewed in person at both the Boulder Museum and The Finnish Institute. "The American road trip has long been symbolic of a collective yearning to seek out beauty and truth within a corrupt nation," a statement announcing the journey reads. "As part of MediaLive 2016’s Corruption theme, #TAKEMEANYWHERE asks, can we find such truths within the corrupted networks of society, and preserve something of the utopian naivety of the Internet age?"
Won't you give LaBeouf, Rönkkö & Turner a ride?
