Photographs and words from the Breyer P-Orridge exhibit from October/November 2005.
Realizing their mutual potential, the two activists and performance artists Lady Jaye Breyer P-Orridge and Genesis Breyer P-Orridge began their collaboration in the early 1990's, focusing on a central concern: the fictional Self. Considering "the 'I' of our consciousness as a fictional assembly or collage that resides in the enviroment of the body," these two Brooklyn-based artists push the limits of body-based genders-ultimately to transcend them. "One of the central themes of our work is the malleability of physical and behavioral identity," they explain, giving rise to their merged identity, Breyer P-Orridge.

Breyer P-Orridge is the subject of their first show in New York, which explores their philosophy of "Pandrogeny," a non-binaristic gender identity that emphasizes bodily similarities over difference, through a collection of kinetic sculptures, video, photography, collage and assorted objects all strung together by the artists' rich and complicated iconography that encompasses body modification, polka-dotted feathers, taxidermied animal heads, and daggers.
