matthew barney's cremaster cycle
    #3297841 - 10/30/04 05:05 PM (12 years, 11 months ago)

i have been a fan of matthew barney's work for a while now, so i was understandably excited when i found out that the entire cremaster cycle was coming to the pacific cinematheque here in vancouver (october 10).

i had watched previously watched a few clips from the cycle and i had read many of the books, but nothing could prepare me for the majesty of actually sitting and watching the whole cycle from the first to the last. it was well over 6.5 hours of aural/visual sensory overload... and a lot of vaseline.

has anyone else had an opportunity to watch the whole cycle, or maybe even just a film or two? did anyone see his exhibit at the guggenheim?

please share your experiences with barney's work.

for those that don't know anything about the cycle, you can learn more about it here:

"It is named after the CREMASTER, the muscle that regulates the height of the testicles in the male body, based on outside temperature or inner emotions."

the whole cycle is actually a metaphor for this muscle and its action, although i think it can be interpreted as life from birth to death as well.

last year, the entire cremaster cycle came to chicago. I only got to see the first two cycles. The first cycle was was a short film about stewardist moving about in a blimp while floating above a football stadium and the marching band below. I almost left the theatre but the second cycle was much better and definely weird. weird in a way that made you want answers and ponder the metaphors a week after seeing the film. a weird after taste.
