An artist is lying down in a busy street dressed as soldier for one week to highlight the subject of conflict.
The piece, called Dead Solider, will see Mark McGowan, 38, lie curled up on Birmingham's New Street for 10 hours each day, from 14 - 20 November.
The artist, from Peckham, south London, has gained £4,000 of public funding and has a month-long retrospective of his work at a Birmingham university.
He said the work raises questions about the horrific nature of conflict.
McGowan has previously made a name for himself by rolling a monkey nut across London with his nose to highlight student debt.
