The artist, BREYER P-ORRIDGE, says about this edition: “It has been a revelation and become very thrilling for me to see 30 years+ of social, ritual and communal creative explorations condensed into what we feel may become the most profound new manual on ‘practical magick’ taking it from its Crowleyan level of liberation and empowermeant of the Individual to a next level of realization that magick must then give back to its environment, its community, become about liberation and empowermeant to change this ‘world’ and evolve our humanE species.”
Hazel Hill, designer and artist from Los Angeles (www.madeofthis.com), met Genesis through Adam Parfrey (owner and director of Feral House Books). The two entered the project as friends and have come out as life-long devotes to each other and most importantly, Lady Jaye.
Thee price is $69 plus shipping, and can be obtained directly from Feral House: www.FeralHouse.com.
Invisible-Exports is proud to present a 30-year retrospective of collage works by performance artist, writer, musician and provocateur Genesis Breyer P-Orridge (Throbbing Gristle, Psychic TV). Genesis is also known among underground circles for he/r affiliations with Brion Gysin and William S. Burroughs, both of whom greatly influenced he/r work. In recent years, P-Orridge began “an ongoing experiment in body modification aimed at creating one pandrogynous being,” received breast implants and started going by “s/he.” This retrospective will showcase the breadth of conceptual imagery (i.e. the “cut-up” technique of the early 20 century Surrealists and elements of Dada-ism) that P-Orridge has been working with in h/er collages over the course of the past three decades:
“30 Years of Being Cut Up” is a three decade retrospective of photomontage and Expanded Polaroids, which includes many works never exhibited before, as well as a sampling of P-Orridge’s early Mail Art. The show will mark the culmination of a new, re-emergent phase in BREYER P-ORRIDGE’s life. He/r career — and most particularly he/r recent pursuit of pandrogyny — tests the limits of transgression and traces the tragic fate of the underground, proving again the expressive power and pervasive influence of those artists who take the world not as it comes to them — sensible, orthodox, predictable — but as they would like it to be.
Opening Wednesday, September 9th, 6-8PM.
14A Orchard Street, just north of Canal / New York, NY 10002
Hours: Wednesday through Sunday, 11- 6:30pm, and by appointment.
