Genesis P-Orridge: A Gif Wall Appeciation

As a visual accompaniment to our review of Marie Losier’s beautiful documentary, The Ballad of Genesis and Lady Jaye, here's a gif wall of the film's subject, Throbbing Gristle/Psychic TV frontman Genesis Breyer P-Orridge doing stuff that only makes him look weirder.
