The Gabba Conspiracy
Video, 3min, looped, 2008.


The Gabba Conspiracy takes up the narrative string from a legendary punk story. It attempts to relocate the roots of the catchphrase "Gabba Gabba Hey", used by and associated with the punk rock band the Ramones. The slogan originally derives from a scene in the 1932 motion picture "Freaks" by Tod Browning, in which the title characters chant the line "Gobble, Gobble, we accept her, we accept her, one of us, one of us!". During one of his field trips the artist met a group of turkeys and spontaneously shouted "Gabba Gabba Hey". Of course, the turkeys gobbled back.
