Genesis Breyer P-Orridge’s Body of Work

It would take a lot more space and a much more evolved vocabulary to properly explain the self-made work of art that is Genesis Breyer P-Orridge. For a quick summation, watch this trailer for the documentary The Ballad of Genesis and Lady Jaye that’s currently playing at Clearview Cinemas and then keep reading…

Did you catch it? Has it sunk in? For years now, Genesis—formerly of the industrial band Throbbing Gristle and Psychic TV—has been undergoing plastic surgery to resemble his second wife Lady Jaye (who died in 2007) to achieve “pandrogyny.” Radical, yes, but Genesis is quite serious about body modification.

See for yourself on April 26, when the musician and performance artist will make an appearance at the Salvor store in Soho to launch a limited-edition scarf by Salvor designer Ross Menuez, featuring Genesis herself, as well as perform a DJ set with Psychic TV band mate Morrison Edley. While it’s invitation only, we trust you to do as Genesis would and use your feminine wiles to get in.
