Forget Manolos If You Can Wear Sculpture Heels
But you shouldn't mind a taxidermy bat.
Entertainment 27 Jan 2019

Imagine high heels turned into sculptures and you get the idea.
Genesis Breyer P-Orridge is the famed British avant-garde singer of Psychic TV, an acclaimed artist and performer who is known as a collaborator of William S. Burroughs (as well as starring in their own documentary The Ballad of Genesis and Lady Jaye).
P-Orridge also just opened a fabulous exhibit of franken-shoes at Marlborough Contemporary in New York City.
