No, it's not because only one member of the British public bought a ticket to his latest film Man Down during its opening weekend... Shia LaBeouf is off to live in a remote Lapland cabin for a month as part of a performance art exhibition.

The 30-year-old American Honey star's project is titled #ALONETOGETHER, and will see him abscond to Finland's Lapland region, with his only communication with the outside world coming via texts to visitors at a Helsinki museum.

The exhibition will also be completed by two other members of the actor's art collective – Nastja Rönkkö and Luke Turner – but they will all be residing in separate cabins.

The trio, who began the project yesterday (April 12), can only communicate with visitors (not each other) at the Kiasma museum in Helsinki, and a livestream of their conversations is available on the museum's website.

It was recently reported that hackers had posted anti-Semitic messages on the website for He Will Not Divide Us, LaBeouf's anti-Trump protest art installation. His installation was shut down after just one day when it moved to Liverpool, due to "dangerous, illegal trespassing".

LaBeouf's previous performance art projects have included the star sitting silently with a paper bag on his head in an LA gallery while members of the public queued up to watch him.

He also livestreamed himself watching all of the movies he's ever been in for three days straight at Angelika Film Center in New York last year.

He currently stars alongside Kate Mara and Gary Oldman as an Afghanistan veteran suffering from PTSD in post apocalyptic war drama Man Down.
