Shia LaBeouf appears in art exhibit called #IAMSORRY

02/12/2014 by Kristina Lopez

Shia LaBeouf is making headlines again, this time the actor appears as part of an art exhibit in Los Angeles called #IAMSORRY.

The exhibit, which opened at the Stephen Cohen Gallery on Tuesday, Feb. 11, features LaBeouf sitting in a room with a paper bag over his head that says "I AM NOT FAMOUS ANYMORE," according to CNN. The paper bag is similar to a bag he wore over his head on the red carpet at the Berlin Film Festival on Feb. 9.

The 27-year-old actor collaborated on the exhibit with Nastja Sade Ronkko and Luke Turner. It is open from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. and will run until Sunday, Feb. 16. When visitors enter the art show, they are asked to pick out objects that have been laid out on a table.

Some of the implements correspond with LaBeouf's career, like Transformers toys from when LaBeouf appeared in the first three "Transformers" films and a whip, likely to represent LaBeouf's role in the 2008 film "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull."/p>

Other items on the table include a bottle of Jack Daniels whiskey, pliers, a ukulele and Hershey's kisses, according to CNN.

Another object on the table is a copy of Daniel Clowes' graphic novel "The Death-Ray." In recent months, LaBeouf has been accused of plagiarism because his short film "HowardCantour.com" heavily borrowed from Clowes' 2007 graphic novel "Justin M. Damiano."

LaBeouf later admitted he didn't properly credit Clowes' work as the inspiration for his short film. In January, he apologized to the author by commissioning a skywriting message over Los Angeles that simply said, "I am sorry Daniel Clowes."

The actor later announced he was "retiring from all public life." Since January 13, he has regularly been tweeting "I AM NOT FAMOUS ANYMORE," with the exception of a tweet on Feb. 11, which simply said, "#IAMSORRY."

Earlier this month, LaBouf walked out of a press conference for his upcoming film "Nymphomaniac Volume I" at the Berlin Film Festival after answering just one question. This occurred just the same day he walked the red carpet with a paper bag over his head.
