Documentary: Matthew Barney : No Restraint

Documentary: Matthew Barney : No Restraint

Alison has created a wonderful film that studies the complexity and obsession in Barney's art. What it does not do is try to explain Barney's rather abstract art - instead it helps you develop a fascination for the artist's approach to his work.

We’ve known director Alison Chernick for a while, it’s only now that she’s brought her documentary on artist Matthew Barney to the IFC in New York that we got a chance to watch her film. “Matthew Barney : No Restraint” follows Barney and collaborator Bjork on a Japanese whaling vessel as they create his work ‘Drawing Restraint 9‘. Alison has created a wonderful film that studies the complexity and obsession in Barney’s art. While it doesn’t try to explain Barney’s rather abstract art – by watching the film, you can’t stop developing a deep fascination for the artist’s approach to his work.
