Drawing Restraint 9 – Matthew Barney
Pennings, Mark W. (2006) Drawing Restraint 9 – Matthew Barney. Machine, 1(6), pp. 4-6.
This article reviews the film "Drawing Restraint 9" at the Dendy Cinema, Brisbane, June, 2006. Barney deals with excess and the spectacle. He presents recurring symbols and metaphorical clusters set around a whaling ship on Nagasaki Bay. After numerous rituals Barney and his partner, Bjork, metamorphise into whales. Barney's films are ambitious and decadent, both compelling for their vision and repellant in relation to his overt narcissism.
