Matthew Barney (1967- )

His work encompasses sculpture,

photography, drawing and film.

Mostly known for his “Cremaster” series.

In the 90s, moved to New York and worked

as a male model for J.Crew catalogues –

a career that helped him finance his early

work as an artist.

Barney is married to Bjork, a very famous

singer from Iceland.

Barney’s epic Cremaster Cycle (1994–2002)

consists of five feature-length films that explore

processes of creation.

Its conceptual departure point is the cremaster

muscle, which is part of the male reproduction

system.

As the cycle evolved over eight years, Barney

looked beyond biology as a way to explore

the creation of form, employing narrative

models from other realms, such as biography,

mythology, and geology.
