As part of her pratice as a performance artist Zoe Simon takes on personas; here she is documented as a model, an adult baby who liked to suck a dummy and fall asleep, a female/ animal hybrid called Femme Cheval and an hysteric. By adopting these personas Zoe Simon is exploring her fascination with and a desire to create female characters who would traditionally be an object of fantasy.
