Having endured a troubled start to life, Shia LaBeouf’s anti-Donald Trump art installation ‘He Will Not Divide Us’ has re-located from America altogether because of safety concerns, finding a new home in Liverpool.

The project is now to be housed at the British city’s Foundation for Art and Creative Technology (FACT) Gallery, after events in New York and Albuquerque showed “that America is simply not safe enough for this artwork to exist”, according to a new statement from the Hollywood star’s artistic group LaBeouf, Rönkkö & Turner.

The installation was originally located on a wall outside New York’s Museum of the Moving Image in Queens, and debuted back on January 20th, the day of the controversial Trump’s inauguration as president.

The project was, and still is, intended to run for the duration of Trump’s presidency – however long that may be – and invited participants to repeat the phrase ‘He Will Not Divide Us’ into the live-stream camera for as long as they wanted.

However, the site quickly became a flashpoint for violence, with far-right activists and Trump supporters regularly disrupting the exhibition. LaBeouf himself was arrested following a physical altercation with a man who said that “Hitler did nothing wrong”.

In February, the museum moved the installation on citing safety concerns. It reopened in Albuquerque in New Mexico, outside the El Rey theatre, but was quickly suspended again after gunshots were heard in the area.

It opened once again in early March in an undisclosed location, featuring a video only of a white flag with ‘He Will Not Divide Us’ written on it. However, users of the message board site 4chan soon found out where it was and defaced the exhibition, which has led LaBeouf and his collaborators to the latest move.

The troubled project began its latest residency at FACT – with whom LaBeouf has collaborated before – on Wednesday (March 22nd).
