One of the most important figures in contemporary art, Matthew Barney became known to a wide public through his cycle of five films, Cremaster, in which he appears to metamorphose into different animal and human forms within a striking, dreamlike, baroque world. His vast, monumental work questions issues of gender, cyborgs and mutant humanity.
