I learn to box by attempting to execute punch combinations called out by a professional trainer. Simultaneously, a violinist listens to the same instructions, but plays them as musical notes.

Fight Logic is a companion piece to Take Karaoke, an installation and "proposition for performance art" by Wickerham and Lomax. It repeats logics that script the body and the performance of identity, dealing in the small failures between representation and execution.

Violin: Michela Bentel. Trainer: Hawk Lao. Curator: Nathan Lee. Thanks: Malcolm Lomax, Daniel Wickerham, Chira Delsesto.
