Shia LaBeouf opens installation art piece '#IAmSorry'

By Jeffrey Rindskopf,

Continuing in his bizarre string of behavior under the guise of artistic expression, Shia LaBeouf has opened a Los Angeles installation art piece titled "#IAmSorry," on Beverly Boulevard, which he'll be part of for a week.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, a press release for the gallery reads, "Shia LaBeouf is sorry. Sincerely sorry. He will be in situ at 7354 Beverly Boulevard for the duration. Implements will be provided. Free admission."

The Metro reports that the so-called "implements" are relics of LaBeouf's career, including Transformers toys, an Indiana Jones-esque whip and several other objects including a pair of pliers and a bottle of cologne.

In the next room, LaBeouf sits at a small table with his favorite bag over his head, reading, "I Am Not Famous Anymore," which he also wore to the Berlin Film Festival. He remains still and silent in the art installation, where only one person is allowed to enter at a time to ask questions which he will not answer, reports the Hollywood Reporter.

The "#IAmSorry" show, a collaboration between LaBeouf and artists Nastja Sade Ronkko and Luke Turner, will last from Tuesday through Sunday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.

This latest stunt of the Nymphomaniac star is nothing new, as he's been doing everything he can for attention since his short film HowardCantour.com was outed as obvious plagiarism of a work by Daniel Clowes. His previous behavior includes a series of plagiarized apologies, strange tweets, a fight outside a bar and storming out of a press conference and returning to the premiere of Nymphomaniac at the Berlin Film Festival with a paper bag over his head.

His actions were outed as some attempt at performance art long ago by a hastily deleted Twitter rant he posted, commenting on the nature of plagiarism in the digital world. It seems LaBeouf, however, has no intentions of stopping the charade any time soon.
