While in SF for a conference last summer, I dropped in to see Matthew Barney's newest, Drawing Restraint 9, at SFMOMA. It was fascinating and, I suppose, a little tiring, but also surprisingly simple, not nearly as ponderous as some people suggest. Nonetheless, while Barney's style has kept me engaged enough to seek out his work while traveling, his distribution methods have always annoyed the fuck out of me. His insistence on not releasing these works on DVD has always struck me as more pretentious than anything involving dressing up like a bird-satyr-angel-fish thing. ANYWAY, apparently a copy of Drawing Restraint has leaked onto the internet. Up next: the edited version for Blockbuster.
