When the surrealist notion of automatism is applied to the phenomenon of twerking, the result is Autotwerk. The act of twerking performed as an automatic gesture in the everyday creates a tension between body, mind and space. The twerk is utilised as an intervention in the environment, as it is withdrawn from Jamaican dancehall culture, and inserted into the suburban landscape of Sydney.
