Dear Art Educators,

This was listed in Scout Report.... thought some of you might find it

14. Matthew Barney: Drawing Restraint [Macromedia Flash Player,QuickTime]

SFMOMA (San Francisco Museum of Modern Art) appropriately uses multimedia to
present this Web feature about multimedia artist Matthew Barney, who works
in an interrelated way in sculpture, film, and installations. Barney often
appears in his works, in character and in costume. He has been working on
his Drawing Restraint series for almost 20 years, and the Web feature
presents excerpts from DRAWING RESTRAINT 9, a recent portion of the series.
DRAWING RESTRAINT 9 includes a feature-length film set on a Japanese whaling
ship, the Nisshin Maru, along with related photography, drawing, video, and
sculpture. The film follows the transformation of an Occidental couple
brought on board the whaling ship, played by Barney and the singer Björk,
who also composed the soundtrack. See the "What Happens in the Film"
section of the Web feature for still images and video of Barney discussing
how the film was made, then move to the "Do These Sculptures Tell Stories?"
section to see sculptures made by Barney to reinterpret the film experience
for the gallery (and online) viewer. [DS]
