Anon1: Well, well..
Anon2: Well?
Anon1: Over here we fight a little differently. A word of precision is more piercing than the swiftest stab.
Anon1: Choose your weapon from the armoury. Take it for your safety.
Anon2: I am not quite sure what you mean, but I am sure I will be a fighter of your calibre.
Anon1: You think so? I have never seen such clumsy swordplay.
Anon2: You would have, but you were always running away.
Anon1: (…)
Anon2: I can’t rest until you’ve been exterminated. I’ll leave you devastated, mutilated, and perforated. I’ll hound you night and day.
Anon1: Then be a good dog. Sit. Stay.
Anon2: So what now?
Anon1: Maybe it is wisest for us to stick together. For survival.
Anon2
: Let’s play.

The exhibition ”Fight or Flight” is an installation combining sculptural pieces and video. The artist loves the American reality TV show ”Survivor” and dreams of making their own videogame.
