Shia LaBeouf is sorry. Very sorry. He swears. Sorry for what? He doesn't specify, but one can imagine it's for all the plagiarizing and also the acting out at the Nymphomanic panel in Berlin and probably for a few other things too. He’s so sorry, in fact, that he’s turned his remorse into an art project in Los Angeles:
According to TIME, the art project is titled, rather aptly, #IAMSORRY and will last from Tuesday morning to Sunday evening. Check out the news release provided to TIME:
The art piece is in tandem with performance artist Nastja Säde Rönkkö and Luke Turner, and will apparently somehow involve LaBeouf himself, who will be “in situ at 7354 Beverly Boulevard for the duration." Also, “Implements will be provided", which is about the most sinister description I can imagine for a Shia LaBeouf art exhibit.
Buzzfeed staff writer Kristin Chirico tweeted her experience:
At #IAMSORRY Shia labeouf is here and they are letting people in one at a time. "This is like a haunted house!"— Kristin Chirico (@lolacoaster) February 11, 2014
#IAMSORRY You are told to choose an implement from a table, there's a Daniel clowes book, a whip, some hershey kisses, a wrench, etc.— Kristin Chirico (@lolacoaster) February 11, 2014
#IAMSORRY And then you go into a room and he's RIGHT THERE and it's HORRIBLE. AND HE SAYS NOTHING.— Kristin Chirico (@lolacoaster) February 11, 2014
Granted, an art installation is a bit of a step up from LaBeouf’s recent apology-laden, attention-grabbing exploits, like that time he wore a paper bag over his head at a film festival premiere, but it still seems a bit counter-intuitive for a man tweeting over and over again that he isn’t famous anymore to create a mysterious art project in L.A. titled with a hashtag.
But what do we know? Shia’s probably got this all figured out, right? Right?
