Filmprojection: "To play possum".


The work: “ To play possum”, shows a 16mm film projection on the floor of the

space. A small boy lies on the floor with his face to the ground. Next to him lies a

small opossum, which is as still as he is. ”To play possum” is an English expression relating to the very strange behaviour of an opossum in danger. When the opossum

is in a situation, which looks quiet, hopeless he throws himself on the ground as if

he was dead, in a last attempt to survive the situation. The film is an endless loop.
