He's famous for his Cremaster Cycle - a special video/photograph/sculpture/installation art work. :sing:

 

The singer, who already has a 17-year-old son, Thindri ...

Yeah, that's funny. :) In an article I found Isadora as Isonora and in Debut era people recognised Bjork as Biorg... :D

To be honest, it goes way beyond my comprehension ... does anybody understand what it's all about? Or even better: can anybody explain what it's all about?

 

The cremaster site's got too much text :hypo:

2 years ago, there was a discussion about it, here on sofftchevaliers. you can find more infos by tapping mathew barney into ::recherche::. there's also one message in english, from cloe.

it's true that i'ts hard to understand, but i don't think that it's necessary to understand. it's more about which impression, sentiment or image it creates in you. because he doesn't communicate with you by his exoplenations of his work, but by his art.

finalement, il fait quoi son mari?sculpteur, c´est ça?

Matthew Barney est sculpteur de formation et il est considéré aujourd'hui comme l'une des 'stars' de l'art contemporain.

chipoti : aux dernières nouvelles, ils ne sont pas mariés. ;)

Il avait déjà fabriqué les chaussures qu'elle porte sur la pochette du DVD de l'Opera House... et il semble bien qu'elle soit depuis longtemps inspiré par ses oeuvres a lui... rien que le collier Medulla...

c'est assez drôle en fait... Matthew Barney m’a toujours passionné tandis que j’écoutais Björk depuis longtemps... L'un de mes fantasmes aurait été qu'il se rencontre et collabore... et bin voilà, ils ont même fait un bb :)

The Reykjavik Arts Festival announced that this year's program, on view from May 14 2005, will focus on contemporary visual arts after three decades of festivals dedicated to the performing arts. A series of exhibitions and installations will be presented in Reykjavik and throughout the country, focusing on the legacy of Dieter Roth, the German-born Swiss artist who spent a large part of his life in Iceland, and who influenced both established and younger artists. Curated by Jessica Morgan, curator of contemporary art at Tate Modern, London, a multi-venue program of newly-commissioned work will be entitled Material Time/Work Time/Life Time and will present throughout Iceland an outstanding selection of national and international contemporary artists. Running concurrently, a Dieter Roth retrospective entitled Dieter Roth, A Private Exhibition will be curated by Bjorn Roth, the son of the artist, and will be presented at several venues in Reykjavik.

 

Material Time/Work Time/Life Time brings together over 30 artists from Iceland, Europe and North and South America whose work shares Roth's interest in collapsing the boundaries between art, life, and materiality. The artists include both Roth's contemporaries and a recent generation such as Peter Fischli and David Weiss, John Latham, Thomas Hirschhorn, Micol Assael, Jennifer Allora and Guillermo Calzadilla, and Gabriela Fridriksdottir who will represent Iceland at the 2005 Venice Biennale. New works commissioned specifically for this festival examine the themes and inspirations at stake in Roth's work. More than 20 venues and sites in Reykjavik, its surroundings and other major Icelandic towns, will host this exhibition, and most sites will focus on the work of only one or two artists. Olafur Eliasson and Margret Blondal will each present sculptural installations in outdoor locations. German artists Jonathan Meese and John Bock will develop new performances while Lawrence Weiner will show new work responding to the well known Icelandic sagas. Film and video are the chosen media of Anri Sala and Wilhelm Sasnal who blend documentary, narrative, and autobiographical techniques. In an unusual collaboration, Matthew Barney will present an installation conceived with Gabriela Fridriksdottir. Other artists participating in the exhibition are Jeremy Deller and Allan Kane, Hreinn Fridfinnsson, Kristjan Gudmundsson, Elin Hansdottir, Carsten Holler, Hekla Dogg Jonsdottir, Haraldur Jonsson, Brian Jungen, On Kawara, Ragnar Kjartansson, Gabriel Kuri, Anna Lindal, Olafur Arni Olafsson, Libia Perez de Siles de Castro, Finnbogi Petursson and Bojan Sarcevic.

 

The Dieter Roth retrospective entitled Dieter Roth, A Private Exhibition will be featured at two of Iceland's largest museums: The National Gallery of Iceland and Reykjavik Art Museum, as well as in Gallery 100º, a renowned gallery, all in Reykjavik.

 

Most of the exhibitions will be on view through July/August.

 

Festival Sponsors: Kaupthing bank is the Presenting Sponsor of the visual arts program of the Reykjavik Arts Festival 2005.

Gabriela a collaboré de nouveau avec Björk pour un clip (prochain single ?!)

 

In November last year, we shot a video together where we tried to make the perfect collaboration. We shot a music video for one of her songs on the new album, Medulla and another for tetralogia Im working on for the Vienice Biennale, It's a working experiment

A voir les magnifiques photos que Gabriela a fait pour Family Tree, je suis plutôt curieux de voir comment son talent peut s'exprimer en vidéo... Si c'est sur where is the line, ce serait extraordinaire... :rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:

 

 

Et pour The Eye, tu peux trouver les dvd's de Matthew Barney dans les librairies spécialisées (à Beaubourg, par exemple)... c'est un peu cher, mais c'est grandiose.

Vais aller faire un tour sur le Cremaster website....

 

j'ai oublié d'ajouter (mais suis plus très sûr!)...il me semble qu'il a été mannequin aussi...n'empêche il est vraiment canon! Bjork a bien de la chance!

En fait Barney réalise de nombreuses "sculptures"(même si le terme est un peu désuet, on pourrait plutot parler d'objets en 3D) qu'il intègre a ses installations, au même titre que les photos; il s'agit par exemple d'éléments de décors ou d'objets extraits des films pour être présentés dans l'espace d'exposition. Tu en trouvera de nombreuses photos dans le superbe The cremaster cycle de Nancy Spector (catalogue de la fameuse expo montrée au Musée d'art moderne de la ville de Paris).

 

Par ailleurs, il a bien été mannequin dans sa jeunesse.

et j'ai pu aussi constater que lors des expositions beaucoup des "sculptures" été présenté...
