Playing dead is a natural state of paralysis that some animals enter when threatened. Many animals are capable of appearing to be dead to an observer, while otherwise alive, as a defence mechanism for avoiding predators.

‘Play Dead’  consists of two self portraits, dressed in what could be described as the traditional costume of a woman who’s main occupation is to run the household, portraying a survival method for the reluctant housewife who conforms by playing dead in order to survive.
