Scattered throughout the expansive spaces of the Palais de Tokyo, a recent exhibition of Poincheval's work, curated by Adelaide Blanc, introduced visitors to the remnants of these feats of endurance, as well as other projects: a transparent bottle approximately nineteen feet long inside which Poincheval traveled up the Rhone River (Bouteille |Bottle], 2015-17); a metal capsule weighing over 154 pounds, in which he traversed more than 186 miles of the Alps (Gyrovague, le voyage invisible (Gyrovague, the Invisible Journey], 2011-12); a platform on which he remained for a week, like a fifth-century ascetic, suspended more than sixty-five feet above the esplanade of the Gare de Lyon in Paris (Vigie/ Stylite [Lookout/Stylite], 2016).
