Independence Day

This work was commisioned by GIL, an organization for disabled indivudals. Inspired by  the blockbuster movie of 1996, Independence Day, we used fragments from the origanal script, and transferred them to old fridges. An invasion was simulated to the centre of night town Gothemburg and the installment stayed for a weekend.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

Thomas Jefferson 4 juli 1776

Perhaps it’s fate that today, July
the Fourth, we will once again
fight for our freedom. Not from
tyranny, persecution or
oppression. But from
annihilation. We’re fighting for
our right to live, to exit. From
this day on, the fourth day of
July will no longer be remembered
as an American holiday but as the
day that all of mankind declared
we will not go quietly into the
night. We will not vanish without
a fight. We will live on. We
will survive.
