GENESIS P-ORRIDGE: THE BODY POLITIC

Genesis Breyer P-Orridge founder of the bands THROBBING GRISTLE and PSYCHIC TV has been an icon of the psychedelic and industrial rock music underworlds for some 30-odd years. S/he's amassed a catalog of substantive and provocative sounds and visuals that draw influence from a wide swathe of musical and social sources, including the cut-up theories of personal friends William Burroughs and Brion Gysin. With the prompting of worldwide followings, both bands have resurfaced over the years through tours and special one-off events, and Psychic TV's current incarnation, PTV3, has recently released the new CD/DVD set, MR. ALIEN BRAIN VS. THE SKINWALKERS.

Altar Everything

Through five decades of transformative art and music, Genesis P-Orridge has broken down binary thinking – s/he talks divine creation, dinner with Donatella, and America’s political apocalypse.

Taken from the summer 2016 issue of Dazed:

Perhaps no living artist personifies the communion of art and life as profoundly as Genesis Breyer P-Orridge. Through half a century of transformative performance, music, visual art and personal evolution, the radical artist has laid a prophetic groundwork in dissolving binaries – between physical and spiritual, sacred and profane, and even life and death. To plumb the depths of h/er oeuvre – h/er pioneering work with COUM Transmissions, Thee Temple ov Psychick Youth, Throbbing Gristle, Psychic TV, Splinter Test, Pigface, PTV3, the Pandrogeny Project, etc – is to initiate a study in the ecstatic power of energy and intent. Nearly everything Genesis touches becomes art, or anointed with symbolic juju for use in an artwork to come.

my L-if-E in photos

For over forty years now, Genesis P-Orridge has been an influential, and often controversial, artist whether it was via the medium performance art, music, or film. Loved and loathed in equal measures, Gen has never shied away from pushing boundaries and being confrontational whilst also creating moments of great beauty and warmth. Whilst there are numerous books dedicated to Gen and their work (mostly focused on their work with seminal band Throbbing Gristle), this is the first official book by Gen and comes in the form of a photographic history with added text.
