French artist starts thirteen days inside bear

A French artist has begun an unusual artistic performance that will see him spend 13 days living inside a bear

Abraham Poincheval first performed Dans La Peau de l'Ours - Inside the Skin of the Bear - at the CAIRN Centre for Contemporary Art in Digne last year.

He is now reprising the piece at the Hunting and Wildlife Museum in Paris, where he will remain until 13 April. According to the Musee de la Chasse et de la Nature, Poincheval is a performance artist "familiar with extreme situations".

The performance piece will see him eat, drink, sleep and relieve himself inside the sterilised carcass of a bear while being filmed by two cameras.
