Abraham Poincheval is attempting to survive inside a 12 -tonne boulder inside a Paris art museum for a week
An artist entombed inside a 12 -tonne rock for nearly three days has described its own experience as like tripping, holding he would stick it out for a week.
Speaking through a rift in the limestone boulder late on Friday, Abraham Poincheval said he had been buoyed by how his recital has got into people heads.
I am advancing in this stone without moving, like an astronaut, he said.
The artist, who is having accumulation his own excrement around him, made headlines worldwide when the two halves of the rock-and-roll shut around him on Wednesday at Pariss Palais de Tokyo art museum.
Poincheval, 44, had carved out a gap inside the rock in his own portrait, exactly big enough for him to sit up in, with a niche to hold renders of sea, soup and dehydrated meat.
People seem to be very stroked. They come and talk into the cracking, read poetry to me, or tell me about their nightmares or their dreams, he said.
They are not so much talking to me, I recall, as to the stone. I am very happy that the stone has got into their heads.
If he lives the ordeal, the performance creator who has previously expended a fortnight sewn-up inside a stuffed stand, will attempt to become a human hen and incubate a dozen eggs by sitting on them for weeks on end.
