Genesis BREYER P-ORRIDGE

The cultural engineer Genesis BREYER P-ORRIDGE is an avant-garde anti-hero whose remarkable body of underground work reminds us that when you believe something, artistic integrity demands that you live by it too. In 2007, h/er partner Lady Jaye BREYER dropped her body, and Genesis continues to practice as an interdimensional collaboration between the material and immaterial world. Their work documents the physical alterations s/he and the late Lady Jaye endured within their project Pandrogeny, about re-union and re-solution of male and female to a perfecting hermaphroditic state. Genesis is one of the most rigorous and relentless agents of the postwar Anglo-American vanguard, interrogating the meaning and substance of identity in a peerless half-century program of willful reincarnation and shape-shifting.
