French artist Abraham Poincheval has taken residence inside a hollowed out bear's body as part of an art performance piece titled "Dans La Peau de l'Ours" (Inside the Skin of the Bear) at the Musée de la Chasse et de la Nature (Hunting and Wildlife Museum) in Paris. During the performance piece which ends April 13, Poincheval, equipped with water, food rations, and a lamp, will eat, sleep, and go to the bathroom inside the empty bear while being filmed by two cameras. “This transcendence between man and bears endures since the dawn of time,” Poincheval explains, “A profound symbolism has existed since prehistory, a symbolism that is still gripping the Western world’s imagination today.”
