Artist Abraham Poincheval has been living inside of a taxidermy bear for a few weeks, as part of an interactive art exhibit in France.

Poincheval's two-week hibernation took place at the Musée de la Chasse et de la Nature. And will continue (after a short break) at Gassendi in Digne-les-Bains.


Inside the bear, the artist had a few survival tools. Including a pillow, a light, and some sort of toilet. According to the Huffington Post, "the piece is meant to test Poincheval's physical limits while allowing the artist to get in touch with his animal instincts."

I don't know about you, but I would sleep in a dead bear bed.
