From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Matthew Barney (born March 25, 1967 in San Francisco, California) is a contemporary media artist working with film, video installations, sculpture, photography and drawing.

Barney spent his youth partially in Idaho, where he regularly played football in his high school team, and partially in New York City with his mother, who introduced him to art and museums. This intermingling of sports and art would inspire his later work as an artist. He received a B.A. from Yale University in 1989. He also spent time as a model.

The film series The Cremaster Cycle is Barney's best-known work. De Lama Lamina (Of Mud a Blade) premiered in September 2004.

Matthew Barney won the Europa 2000 prize at the 45th Venice Biennale in 1993. In 1996, he was the first recipient of the Hugo Boss Prize, awarded by the Guggenheim Museum. He has just released Drawing Restraint 9, a collaboration between himself and Björk.

He and Björk have a daughter, Isadora, who was born October 3, 2002.
