Could a whale “run aground” on the bank of the river in Paris?

Source: Radiotelevisione svizzera di lingua italiana, RSI (22.07.2017).Going for a walk along the bank of the Seine, would you envisage to bump into a whale having “run aground”? That became possible on Friday in Paris, on Tournelle quay (quai de la Tournelle), by a “reproduction” of around “twenty metres” and clearly visible (Radiotelevisione svizzera di lingua italiana, RSI / Italian language Swiss radio and television).

It is, indeed, about an “installation”, which has been realised by the Belgian collective Captain Boomer“. 

The aim of the “artists” would be “to sensitise and increase civil awareness […] on the problem […] of whales and dolphins” running aground.

Apparently, “numerous pictures” have been taken by persons (“Parisian and tourists”) who were passing through and thought that “the carcass was real” (ibidem).
