She admits she has a fear of germs.

But for her new art installation, Miru Kim has decided to live with pigs for 104 hours, non-stop.

The former medical student is staying in a pen at the front of one of the galleries at Art Basel Miami 2011, and visitors can watch her, naked, through the window.


Performance: Miru Kim lies with two pigs in a glass enclosure as part of an art installation, I Like Pigs And Pigs Like Me. She will live with the animals for 104 hours. 'When I mingle with pigs, I feel my existence more than ever,' she said
