The Calcutta-born artist (Ansuman Biswas) has been picked to spend 40 days and 40 nights in a tiny room at the top of Manchester Museum, looking over the city. Surrounding him will be 4.5 million artefacts, treasures the museum has collected over time.
The 43-year-old will contemplate things “lost” and the impact of extinction. Currently living in London, Mr Biswas will uproot his life to exist in the ivory tower from 27 June until 5 August.
His only communication with the outside world will be through his internet blog as he details what life is like in seclusion.
But, or however, I’m not able to find the address of the blogging hermit’s blog. Might be interesting to check in on it…
