P-Orridge has been operating on the fringe since the late 1960’s. H/er creative operations have become manifest in many media including performance, music, writing and art. Consistently on the edge of rational thought and living life under h/er own terms.

These collages display the irreverent nature that has become the artist’s mainstay. The snarling middle finger has always been pointed somewhere, any other course for P-Orridge would have been unnatural. Don’t let h/er disdain for the status quo fool you, the production is based in an intellectualism that few have dared to tread. Should the name conjure little more than a blinking stare, please read up on this incredible life/career.
