An empowered breath
A meditative breath
A breath of pleasure and release
A series of invitations were sent out by Ifekoya to their extended community for a dancer, a drummer, a gathering around breath and breathing and a sonic response to these images. Participants were invited to take part in person, or virtually, to explore tantric techniques of visualisation, breath work, movement and sound to awaken the senses, release the Bliss hormone and heal the Divided Self.
This new video work explores the relationship between documentation and liveness, opening portals of intimacy by bringing people together through different spaces and time. Inspired by Sylvia Wynter’s statement that drums are ““enabling mechanism(s) of consciousness reversal” (Black Metamorphosis), Undercurrent 528 is an offering of rhythmic medicine.
