Australian Artist Buried Under Busy Road For 72 Hours


SYDNEY – An Australian performance artist has been buried in a steel container under a busy road where he will spend 72 hours as part of a so-called dark arts festival act held on the island state of Tasmania.

Artist Mike Parr entered the mini-shipping container late on Thursday and the road was resealed above him. The 73-year-old has plenty of water, reading and writing material, a heater and a distress button in case anything goes wrong – but no food.

Oxygen will be pumped into the container.
