drawing restraint

a trailer for a film by matthew barney. via k17k.

unfortunately, if you missed it, there are no dvd releases for this feature. :(

+ i first stumbled upon matthew barney at the guggenheim 5 years ago,
after someone had randomly recommended me to go see the show "since i was an industrial designer" (i realized what he'd meant after seeing floors and floors filled with sculptural model-making like elements - still odd, though thankful).

you know something or someone is genius when it wasn't even your thing
to begin with and they still leave you awestruck and amazed.
he had completely covered the whole museum with an odd world
of his bizarre, odd, eery and sterile stories.
just the sheer amount of work, the ideas, a complete world he'd created
blew me away to be in the presence of it all.

go check it out more here : the cremaster cycle.

  1. i was there in NY, and wished i had seen it. its probably one of those shows that only happen once or twice in a life time.
    i havent seen the film either.
    it seems like there are a few things i'd like to see or experience, but the timing doesnt feel quite right yet.
