Breyer P-Orridge at Warhol Museum


Visual artist and Psychic TV front wo/man Genesis Breyer P-Orridge is about to have h/er first solo institutional exhibition at the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh.  S/HE IS HER/E contains over 100 works made by the artist from the 1970s to the present.  Created in collaboration with his late wife Lady Jaye, P Orridge’s ‘Pandrogyne Project’ is the focal point of the exhibition. In an ongoing proposition, the couple sought to combine their two identities (through surgeries, cross dressing and hormone therapy) into one pandrogynous being; ‘Breyer P-Orridge’.  The video above, included in the exhibition, addresses this collapsing of gender.  Following the death of Lady Jaye in 2007, Genesis continues the project by occupying Breyer P-Orridge completely.

S/HE IS HER/E opens on  June 15th.
