Movie star, turned performance artist, Shia LaBeouf has set up a new installation in Liverpool called #TOUCHMYSOUL.

The exhibition sees Shia, along with collaborators Nastja Ronkko and Luke Turner, work in a mock up call centre taking calls from the public and asking them to ‘touch my soul’.

The trio have been manning the phones at Liverpool’s Fact Gallery since 11am this morning and can be reached until 6pm.

We tried to get through to the wacky actor, but he’s receiving so many calls that even our 130 attempts didn’t get through. Luckily the chat is then logged online, here’s how the public tried to touch Shia’s soul so far.

Some try cheer.

Some fans have taken to twitter, upset about being unable to talk to Mr LaBeouf.

The 29-year-old actor has become increasingly known for his intriguing performance art. He also famously wore a paper bag with the slogan ‘I am not famous anymore’ on the red carpet or the time he sat in a room with another bag on his head letting the public say whatever they wanted to him.

More of a concept than a journalist, Tom Percival was forged in the bowels of Salford University from which he emerged grasping a Masters in journalism. Since then his rise has been described by himself as ‘meteoric’ rising to the esteemed rank of Social Editor at UNILAD as well as working at the BBC, Manchester Evening News, and ITV. He credits his success to three core techniques, name repetition, personality mirroring, and never breaking off a handshake.
