The strange behavior continues for Shia LaBeouf. Just a few days after he showed up to a movie premiere with a paper bag over his head, the actor held a free art exhibit called #IAMSORRY at Cohen Gallery in Los Angeles.
With little explanation, the former Disney star’s artistic collaborator announced the exhibit, calling it “collaborative project” with himself and performance artist Nastja Sade Ronkko. “Shia LaBeouf is sorry,” a press release said. “Sincerely sorry. He will be in situ at 7354 Beverly Boulevard for the duration. Implements will be provided. Free admission.”
According to multiple media outlets, guests waited in line to enter a room, where Shia was seated with a paper bag over his head reading, “I’m not famous anymore” (he wore a similar get-up to a movie premiere over the weekend). Before interacting with the actor, viewers were told to choose an object, from a wide array of “unusual” choices, to bring in with them.
As each guest approaches, the 27-year-old sheds tears through the paper bag.
The #IAMSORRY message is just one of many apologies Shia has issued over the past several months, since he was accused of plagiarizing in his short film HowardCantour.com. Many of his apologies have also been plagiarized, which he’s said was a way for him to point out how easy it was to copy someone else’s work. Recently, though, he’s mostly just continued making the point that he’s no longer famous (a la the paper bag and a string of tweets).
