Lady Jaye Breyer P-Orridge 1969-2007
Member of Psychic TV and Genesis P-Orridges' "other half," Lady Jaye Breyer P-Orridge, died unexpectedly on October 11th of an undiagnosed heart condition. She died in Genesis' arms in Brooklyn. Anyone that knows me, knows Genesis is one of my greatest inspirations. So to hear his partner is gone is kind of devastating. My heart goes out to the PTV family. Me and P-Dorkel saw her play
with Psychic TV a few years ago and we agreed it was one of the best concerts we'd seen. Genesis and her had been getting surgeries/performing rituals to look like each other as much as possible in order to manifest their idea of Pandrogeny. Essentially, they are utilizing science and will to realize the idea of moving beyond age-old concepts like gender. Evolutionary development naturally leads to new ways of perceiving and living. More eloquently, in Genesis' words, Pandrogeny is "a state of positive androgeny. An alchemical state where all physical and mental boundaries are dis-solved to awaken our remembrance of what we were before the beginning of T.I.M.E." It is "the end of this 'redundant' physical manifestation of form of our species and the recognition that the brain is a separate yet coexistent entity symbiotically dwelling within the body." A fascinating article on their body art project is here. Lady Jaye was living these ideas for real. Very inspiring. RIP.
This is some mind bending art they did together: More here.
