French artist Abraham Poincheval is known for his…. unique… performance art.
Like that time he lived in a rock for a week “to feel the aging stone inside the rock.”
Most recently, Poincheval has been roosting on a nest of eggs at the Palais de Tokyo modern art museum in Paris with the hopes of having enough body heat to incubate and eventually hatch the eggs.
Scientists were pretty skeptical, predicting that the chicks would not get enough heat from Poincheval and most likely die. And yet, after more than three weeks, Poincheval successfully hatched his eggs! The chicks will go to live in a luxury coop at Poincheval’s home in Normandy.
Now the question is, will the chicks have an identity crisis from having a human father?
