about the video

Forty four-year-old French artist Abraham Poincheval is attempting to become a ‘human hen’ by sitting on 10 eggs inside a glass vitrine in hopes of hatching them. Part of an art exhibit at a Paris modern art museum, the performance is called ‘Egg’, and could last up to 26 days. Poincheval will get only a half-hour break every 24 hours to keep him from cracking. This isn’t the first time Poincheval has attempted this bizarre; previously he spent two weeks inside a bear structure and a week inside a rock.
