Abraham Poincheval (born 1972 in Alençon, lives and works in Marseille) is an insatiable explorer. Whether by crossing the Alps while pushing a capsule he used as his shelter, or by enclosing himself for a week in a rock, his—itinerant or static—expeditions
require total physical commitment. The inhabitable sculptures
which the artist conceives are laboratories allowing him to experience time
, enclosure or immobility. They are the envelope that hosts the performer
, an object that disturbs the landscape, and which exists through word of mouth.
