Continuing his desperate effort to prove he’s a bold, avant garde performance artist and not a serial plagiarist which he absolutely is, Shia LaBeouf is reportedly shopping around an art show to LA galleries that is exactly as pretentious and up-his-own-ass as you’d expect. Via THR:
One gallerist — who wishes to remain unnamed – was contacted by LaBeouf, who emailed him a proposal, which THR has obtained exclusively and which is excerpted below. The actor describes his planned show, titled #IAMSORRY; it would feature pliers, whiskey, Belgian chocolates, Transformers toys, printed-out Twitter comments on folded paper and a ukelele.
“For 7 days, Shia will sit at a table in a small, boxy room at the rear of a Los Angeles gallery,” it reads. “It is not clear if this is actually Shia, or an imposter. A paper bag will cover his head, emblazoned with the words ‘I AM NOT FAMOUS ANYMORE.’”
A long table, holding the assortment of items, or “implements” as LaBeouf calls them, would be on hand to be used by visitors however they wanted. “It will be made clear that they can do what they please with this item,” reads the proposal. LaBeouf – or the imposter – “will remain silent throughout … He will be subjected to humiliation or forgiveness at the visitor’s discretion.”
When reached for comment, James Franco said, “Hashtags? Belgian chocolate? Implements?! A.. a… GEH. My ejaculate is a reflection on the commoditization of thought! *opens umbrella, jumps off roof* FIDELIO!”
UPDATE: This was plagiarized, too? Mercy be.
