LIVING IN A BEAR
'Performance Art' has become this all-encompassing term for what fits the fancy these days.
For French artist Abraham Poincheval that meant spending two weeks living inside a hollowed-out sculpture that he covered with the skin of a bear. Yeah, that’s right, I’m not saying that he lived in the carcass of a bear for nearly two weeks - cause that just sounds bad ass and crazy doesn’t it? When in fact - it was a hollowed out sculpture of a bear that he reclined in with limited supplies of food and water. His unusual living arrangement even came equipped with a makeshift unit for um…relieving oneself. Doesn’t sound so bad ass now, does it? Although it’s probably started to sound a tad crazy.
Poincheval’s performance took place from April 1 – April 13th inside the Musee de la Chasse et de la Nature in Paris. The symbolic hibernation started with Poincheval’s quest for understanding his animal nature and physical limits. The performance was broadcast 24 hours a day through a live web feed. I’m going to speculate and say nothing spectacular happened.
Ah, to each his own.

Damn. She’s asian too.
PORN FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY (NSFW)
Brian Steinhoff’s attempts at lessening the shock with a skin trade of floral patterns somehow doesn’t make me blush any less. Matter of fact, I debated whether or not to add NSFW to Magazine’s post. But my eyes were quick to replace grandma’s bad wallpaper for skins tones and fleshy parts.
This creative form of discussing the banality of censorship makes me think of those late nights trying to bring in films I ought not - trying to make out bodies through the fuzz and static. What I couldn’t see was quickly replaced by my wild adolescent imagination. With form and shape still intact does Steinhoff’s series really hide anything? Or does it represent the things/images we inevitably can’t control?
