The culture of culture that is French

by on February 24, 2017 at 11:30 am in The Arts | Permalink

A French artist is preparing to be entombed for a week inside a 12-tonne limestone boulder in a modern art museum in Paris, after which he will emerge and attempt to hatch a dozen eggs by sitting on them for weeks on end.

…He once spent a fortnight inside a stuffed bear, was buried under a rock for eight days and navigated France’s Rhone river inside a giant corked bottle.

…He also played at being a human mole, and crossed France on foot in a straight line with a friend.

As for the entombment:

The only mystery is how he will go to the toilet, with the artist becoming uncharacteristically evasive when pressed on the subject.

Here is the article, via Anecdotal.

That’s not the only mystery

The bigger mystery is that if they can entomb one French conceptual artist, why can’t they entomb them all?

Such a degenerate people. It will be a net positive when the Muslims cull some of them and force the rest to behave.

I have a friend who allowed himself to be buried alive as part of an art piece. Fun times.

Not for very long though. I think it was like 12 hours or something, and he had an air tube.

French? Isn’t there already an English “magician” who does the same sort of performance?

Crossing France in a straight line sounds like a cool project.

It’s a real challenge, given their alcohol intake.

The culture that is Los Angeles …

Mr. Barlow, this is our cosmetician from the Gothic Slumber Room.
She’ll take good care of you.

Will you follow me, please?

What did you have in mind?
Inhumement, entombment, inurnment, immurement?
Some people just lately have preferred ensarcophagusment.
It’s very individual.

You see, the kid wanted his own lab.
Well, he started in taking stuff home from school.
Radar sets, jet engines, that kind of thing.
Then he went after their atomic reactor.

A raving lunatic.

I tell you, Will, he can put them in orbit.

– He can what?

– He can put them in orbit, Will.

He can put them into orbit.
He can put them into an orbit of eternal grace.

I believe these things are far from easy to understand as it’s too complicated, so I would rather not even try doing it. I like following this blog for obvious reasons and apart from it, I always do work with proper approach. I am a professional trader, so I always keep eyes on the market and all news around it with also keeping up on the strong money management road, it all works seriously nicely and helps bringing fair amount of rewards.
