Sculptor shuts himself inside a rock

Last year, French sculptor Abraham Poincheval, 44, had shut himself inside a rock carving for a week at a Paris museum. This is among his many acts of isolation.

In his latest act of isolation he climbed into a sculpture of a prehistoric lion man at Aurignac, France where he survived on 20 liters of water along with dried fruit and meat.

As per Abraham, these acts allow people to directly interact with him.

Earlier he lived in a plastic bottle as it travelled along the Rhone River. For 2 weeks he lived inside a bear sculpture.

As every artist has his/her own way of creating a niche and interacting with people, these acts of isolation are Poincheval way.
