Model/actress Milla Jovovich turned herself into a living artwork on Tuesday (28May13) as part of the famous Venice Biennale festival in Italy.

The Resident Evil star has teamed up with American artist Tara Subkoff to create a performance piece for the Venice art exhibition in conjunction with the Marella clothing brand.

Jovovich was installed in a transparent box in the city, and instructed to play a character over the course of five hours, only communicating with the outside world via her electronic devices.

She posted a series of pictures on her page in the run up to the event, writing, "Hey every1 (sic) I'm about to start the performance piece w (with) Tara Subkoff I (am) now fake Milla for the nxt 5 hrs (sic). Goodbye real Milla."

Jovovich went on to post more pictures from her time inside the box, tweeting to fans and using as part of the performance piece.
