French Artist Abraham Poincheval Is Living Inside a Taxidermy Bear.
French artist Abraham Poincheval is spending 13 days inside a taxidermy bear for his performance art piece “Dans La Peau de l’Ours” (“Inside the Skin of the Bear”) at the Hunting and Wildlife Museum in Paris through April 13, 2014.
Just like the animal itself stays with very little enclosure during the cold months, Abraham Poincheval has all he needs to survive throughout the weeks spent inside; food, water, activities and even a place to relieve himself are all contained inside the makeshift unit. Visitors are encouraged to interact with the encased artist, if you’re not around, you can watch him via live stream.
