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.”

It’s a film by André Gidoin & The Makerie Studio. All filmed in camera, the horses on the carousel are spaced to spin in sync with the camera’s frame rate, creating the illusion of motion. Each one is carefully studied to follow the one before it, so that once animated they appear to be galloping.

Art - Sweet Station Paul Kaptein ” My work is broadly concerned with the agency of the present moment. By sampling various cultural and temporal trajectories, I’m exploring the notion of the now as a remix of past and future potentialities. This facilitates a renegotiation of perceptual truths resulting in an expression of things not quite truth, yet not quite fiction. Central to this is the underlying theory of emptiness (sunyata).

Hi-Fructose Magazine In his portrait series, the Austrian artist Aldo Tolino deconstructs, folds, reassembles and weaves printed photographs in order to create origami-like sculptural pieces. Tolino then re-photographs the works, converting the pieces back into two-dimensional objects.
