Genesis BREYER P-ORRIDGE “Blue Blood Virus” at INVISIBLE-EXPORTS

INVISIBLE-EXPORTS is proud to present “Blue Blood Virus,” the third solo exhibition by Genesis BREYER P-ORRIDGE, and the first show of new collage work since 2009. Also included will be an on-site work in progress, in which BREYER P-ORRIDGE will be present at the gallery each week, inviting viewers to witness he/r process, and to join in an ongoing dialogue about he/r life and work.

A legendary avant-garde visionary, Genesis BREYER P-ORRIDGE has spent literally a half-century interrogating identity: s/he was deeply involved in Fluxus and was a leading activist in Fluxshoe (Fluxus in Europe) in the 1960’s and 1970’s; the founder of COUM Transmissions (1969), the performance collective which spawned Throbbing Gristle whose sound s/he named Industrial Music (with Monte Cazazza) in September 1975; a central figure in the notorious 1976 ‘Prostitution’ exhibition at ICA London, which had Genesis branded by Parliament a “wrecker of civilization”; a Mail Art pioneer and collaborator with William Burroughs and Brion Gysin from 1971 until their deaths in the 1980s; and, beginning in the 1990s, the co-author of the now-mythic pandrogyny project, in which s/he and he/r now-late other-half, Lady Jaye, endeavored to merge both their genders and their identities—making their bodies the very vessels of the avant-garde imperative to re-imagine and reinvent as one “third being,” a Pandrogyne.
