I wasn't sure whether to put this in the general chat or news section but .....
French artist Abraham Poincheval - who has already spent two weeks living inside a stuffed bear - plans to commune with the humble chicken for his latest performance stunt.
How? By incubating 10 eggs with his own body heat.
He will live inside a glass vivarium until his charges hatch, watched by visitors to the Palais de Tokyo museum in Paris.
Poincheval expects the process to last between 21 and 26 days.
"I will, broadly speaking, become a chicken," he said.
The artist, 44, began the performance - titled "Oeuf" (Egg) - on Wednesday.
Rather than sitting on the eggs directly, he is deploying a chair with a container under its seat.
Now you can call me old fashioned but I should imagine that not so many years ago, someone carrying on like this would be put into mental hospital and treated. My only problem would be in deciding whether the person locked up should be the 'artist ' or anyone who thinks that what he does is art.:confused:
