Swagophilia’s $ong of Fleshy Wind is a performative video sculpture exploring embodied feminism, the shamanic impulse and the spirituality of hip hop. Through a type of performative, dream yoga, I cross-pollinate sacred kundalini chanting with rapper SchoolBoy Q’s hook “man of the bounce,” demonstrating how twerking and gyrating is an ancient, divine feminine rite associated with fertility of the earth and the female body as poetry.
