The American artist Matthew Barney (b. 1967, San Francisco) is perhaps best known for the Cremaster cycle, a series of five feature-length films, produced from 1994–2002. Epic in scope, the series combines high production values with spectacular locations, props and costumes. This parallel mythological world is rich and complex in its symbolism.
For this exhibition the Serpentine Gallery presents an exhibition and series of screenings focusing on Matthew Barney’s most recent film Drawing Restraint 9, 2005. The exhibition will also include works from each of the Drawing Restraint series from 1 through to 15.
