“We will need to give up any ideas ov thee body being sacrosanct if we wish to explore space. Genetic mutation and engineering will be essential for meaningful space travel. Whilst our Pandrogeny process began as an intimate private thing, inevitably I.T. became visibly to a public because we are performers and artists as well. We feel that we are duty bound to TRY and share some ov our thoughts on why we do these procedures with you who visit, as a politeness and sign ov respect from us to you. This is not a necessity, butter an offering we make in a more intimate space where we hope friends and allies dwell.” – Genesis P-Orridge (from genesisp-orridge.com, April 2005)

This presentation of a moment on the corner of Wilson and Broadway, on Chicago’s north side, has much to do with memory; the type of memory that comes from a single moment, maybe a few seconds, but last with us for much longer as in an expansion of that point in time. Standing there, things flatten out and lose meaning, becoming one big artwork of form, color, and sound; the moment is transformed.

“Combines a sense of cheerful expediency (simply outlining what’s already there) with a sort of daffy mysticism (pointing out what clearly isn’t there) to create a system we can hardly decipher but instructively understand.” – Emily Hall, Artforum
