FIGHT-FLIGHT-FREEZE

2013

 

Fight-Flight-Freeze investigates the social, psychological and gender identity of the people practicing martial arts regarding the socially constructed fighter archetypes on a broad level.
On a personal level, it displays fight as a metaphor of a process of self-discovery and acknowledgment, the facing and overcoming intrinsic fears, coming to terms with self-harming impulses and persisting body-image issues: “You’re going to get hit. It’s about getting hit on your own terms.”
