First West Coast Exhibition | Through 24th November

28th September 2019, 11:18 am

Dual Exhibition


Pandrogeny I
is at Lethal Amounts
and showcases Breyer P-Orridge’s evolution of gender work.


Pandrogeny II
is at Tom of Finland Foundation
 and is a survey of h/er artwork from 1986 – 2016.

Both spaces will explore the many facets of Breyer P-Orridge’s art and h/er influence through a selection of paintings, photos, sculptures and installations, that will reveal the ways that gender has shaped the artist and h/er work particularly with the project Pandrogeny (which started in 1995) with other half (dominatrix, registered nurse, performance artist, and musician) Jacqueline Breyer—aka “Lady Jaye”. In July 2019 s/he received the Kamookak Medal from the Royal Canadian Geographical Society for her explorations on projects in popular and social culture and gender geography.

Some people feel they are a man trapped in a woman’s body.
Some people feel they are a woman trapped in a man’s body.
A pandrogyne just feels trapped in a body.

The shows spotlight P-Orridge’s art objects and their documentation of bodily transformations — part of what the artist calls “an exploration of evolution and the human condition and its need to evolve and de-evolve through signs of gender neutrality and gender dysphoria seen in modern Homo sapiens.”

Tickets for Saturday’s Pandrogeny exhibition will gain you entrance to this special event. Make sure to stop by Tom of Finland Foundation before to see the artwork on display there.

READ Genesis Breyer P-Orridge has built a legacy on creating singular art and music that both shocks and stimulates.


READ The exhibition will span h/er career from 1986, back when s/he worked with her partner Lady Jaye, who passed away in 2007.


READ Collection spanning both h/er career as an artist as well as h/er views on the evolution of gender through a selection of paintings, installations, photos, and sculptures.


READ The Pandrogeny project was an exploration of evolution and the human condition and its need to evolve and de-evolve through signs of gender neutrality and gender dysphoria seen in modern homo sapiens.

READ From paraphernalia from Psychic TV, P-Orridge’s occult-inspired rock band, to intimate self-portraiture showing the aftermath of gender-confirmation surgery, the works comprise a visual chapter book culminating in Pandrogeny.

READ He/r work has exhibited in museums and galleries around the world, including the ICA (Philadelphia, USA), the Tate Britain (London, UK); Deitch Projects (New York, USA); The Andy Warhol Museum (Pittsburgh, USA); The Serpentine Galleries (London, UK); MoMA P.S.1 (New York, USA); Mass MOCA (North Adams, MA, USA); Participant, Inc. (New York, USA); among many others. H/er archives are part of the Tate’s permanent collection.

READ Hard to believe perhaps, but counterculture icon Genesis Breyer P-Orridge has never really had a proper career-spanning exhibition on the West Coast — until now; and a survey across decades of mixed media and performative (including both in music and notable physical transformation) creative output is too big a deal — and literally too big — for just one gallery.


READ Genesis Breyer P-Orridge of Throbbing gristle and Psychic TV has announced a dual art exhibit, also credited to the deceased Lady Jaye. It’s called PANDROGENY I & II and it’s at Tom of Finland Foundation (part I) and Lethal Amounts Gallery(part II) from October 23 – November 24 in Los Angeles.

READ There’s no separation in what we do, and Tom of Finland was the same. It’s an obsession. It’s a compulsion. It’s something that has to be done because you have no choice. Even if you’re starving to death and have no hope of income, you still create because it’s so integral to your identity and existence.

READ One at Tom of Finland, in his house… they keep it as it was when he lived there. When you do an exhibition, what you put there goes amongst all his things, so that one is mainly sculptures. One is Bubblegum Machine, and it represents the womb. It has ice cubes and scorpions. It’s the myth of biological replication.
