‘Report’– this inconspicuous button with a flag icon appears underneath every single YouTube video we watch marking the limits of our freedom on the internet. Once flagged by anonymous users, after being checked by the also anonymous YouTube team, a video quickly disappears forever. In exactly this process, Dominic Gagnon intervenes. He 'saves' the flagged videos before they are deleted and adds them to a dark and mythological collage of American survivalism. People who deeply mistrust the government, who warn their fellow citizens, and who arm themselves visibly talk candidly to camera. The protagonists of Pieces and Love All to Hell are mostly female, whereas in Gagnon's earlier work RIP in Pieces America they were mainly male.
