Through the phantasmagoric veil of my own distorted magnitude Ive developed what I affectionately term a derelict cosmogony of the spiritualism of hip hop via the embodied freedom encompassed in its interdynamic gestures of power, symbolism, triple metaphor, dance and song as metalanguage. Paired with my work as a yoga instructor and interest in Contemporary Goddess Archetypes, my work explores Hip Hop in all its incantations as a dynamic form of esotericism or neo-Jungian cultural dreaming in which the authors, coauthors and fans of the genre use powerful symbols and lingering sounds that engage body, mind and group soul.
Historically avant-garde practice has entailed an interculturalism of appropriation that always relies on white hegemony as its veritable backbone. As bell hooks notes, white consumers utilize black vernacular popular culture to disrupt bourgeois values. She further states that the contemporary moment is indicative of sociocultural climate in which consumers happily eat the other.
My work hinges on hooks explosive moment as the abysmal residue of capitalist commodity fetishism, an illusive, psychosexual chimera. Your ass is in what you sing, wrote Fred Moten, whose work on the radical black tradition sheds light on the role of improvisation and the dispersive sensuality of sound and speech, the constituting intoxication of that most radical political aesthetic reason.
