Jan Fabre - Self Portrait As The World's Biggest Worm

"Visitors walk by a work by Belgian artist Jan Fabre "Self portrait as the world's biggest worm" a metres-long silicon worm crawling on a carpet of 470 granite tombstones at his exhibition "The Angel of the Metamorphosis" at the Louvre Museum in Paris on April 23, 2008. Fabre, a conceptual artist known for his blue "Bic" ballpoint pen drawings, is showing some 40 works among the Louvre's "Painting of the Northern School" collection, as part of the museum's efforts to juxtapose modern and classical art.
