You Think That's Bad...
Matthew Barney - Cremaster 2 Still (1999)
Apparently, comparing the size of our recent kill has been replaced by comparing record snowfalls in our respective hometowns. We certainly were lucky that all the snowplows were busy plowing when the garage's roof caved in from all the snow. When is the season that socially mandates we publicly compare something with meaningful weight; the depth of our life philosophy or the amount and creativity of our efforts to advance thought and culture this week. I expect this week's winner will be be Chazen's Thursday showing of Matthew Barney's Cremaster 2 and subsequent lecture by Matthew Ryle (of Barney's studio) about the interdisciplinarity of object and film. That's at least a seven-foot trout under sixty inches of fresh snow.
