Artist's Statement

Through the phantasmagoric ‘veil’ of my own distorted magnitude I’ve 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. http://katiecercone.com/home.html
