Shia LaBeouf Asks Public to Call Him and ‘Touch His Soul’ for Art


Shia “Just Do It” LaBeouf is back with his latest piece of performance art.

The Transformers star and all-around strange dude has set up a call center at the Fact Gallery in Liverpool, where he will take phone calls from the public in a piece of performance art he calls “#TOUCHMYSOUL.”

Interested parties can contact LaBeouf at this number between the hours of 11am-6pm GMT: +44 (0)151 808 0771.

LaBeouf is taking calls alongside frequent collaborators Nastja Säde Rönkkö and Luke Turner, with whom the actor also worked on his memorable #IAMSORRY art exhibit in Los Angeles in February.

The whole #TOUCHMYSOUL exhibit is being live-streamed at, where the group is also posting snippets of the phone logs and what appear to be random notes through the duration of the event.

A small sampling of the call logs:

“I work as a wrestler

I knock guys out with my thighs

and they really like it

I could probably touch your soul with my thighs.”

“do you believe in the Illuminati, do they really exist?”


Meanwhile, people on Twitter are reporting that they’ve spoken to LaBeouf, though in some cases, the actor apparently hung up on them.

LaBeouf had been tweeting #TouchMySoul on Twitter for at least a week before the event, though no one had known what he meant by it.
