Breyer P-Orridge + Pierre Molinier @ INVISIBLE-EXPORTS, Sep 5 – Oct 12

4 September 2014

A transcendental collaboration from living avant-garde artist and transgressive pioneer Breyer P-Orridge and their posthumous childhood inspiration “transvestite Baudelaire” Pierre Molinier is happening at New York’s INVISIBLE-EXPORTS, opening September 5 and running to October 12.

In being introduced to the “forgotten surrealist” during their English public school days, when the future COUM Transmissions co-founder and Throbbing Gristle vocalist still answered to the name ‘Neil’, P-Orridge found an affinity with the French artist’s radical collages and now famous photomontage portraits in an early 20th-century rejection of gender.

As does pandrogyne P-Orridge whose experiments in rethinking the human body insists that it’s nothing more than “a cheap suitcase to give mobility to consciousness. Furthermore, a cheap suitcase that breaks down faster the more you ‘travel’.”
