Pharmakon

Pharmakon

Curated by Perfume Genius

Margaret Chardiet doesn't need to change costumes to completely transform on stage. As Pharmakon, she creates an echo chamber of monstrous proportions, making Pharmakon one of the heaviest and most distressful noise acts in recent memory. In reality, Chardiet celebrates the exchange of forces between performer and audience, making live performances a punch in the gut from the get-go, and leaving a permanent impression on the psyche.
