The Pandrogyne Fabric is based off of a art piece done by Lady Jaye and Genesis P-Orridge called the Pandrogyne Project. During the project, they tried to make themselves look like each other through clothing, makeup and plastic surgery. It spoke to a queer type of reproduction, because they couldn’t have children together, they thought, “...what if we cut up our bodies and our identities, so that we became a third being...”
What inspired me about this project was the complete control that Lady Jaye and Genesis P-Orridge had over their bodies without much regard for social customs. I made this fabric thinking about what reproducing that “third being” would mean for me and my partner. To understand what it would look like to have our body features grow together. We both work with textiles so this was a way for me to understand our bodies as a material that we are able to manipulate.
