MATTHEW BARNEY: OTTO TRILOGY. Matthew Barney. Gladstone Gallery, New York, 2016. Distributed by Yale University Press, New Haven. 224 pp. with 275 ills. (250 col.). 20 x 27 cm. ISBN 9780300223699 In English.
Publisher's description: Celebrated for works blending performance, video, and sculpture, Matthew Barney has created complex narratives that emerge across series since his earliest exhibitions. Matthew Barney: OTTO Trilogy is the first book to trace the progression of three significant early projects -- Facility of INCLINE, Facility of DECLINE, and OTTOshaft -- and to reveal the narrative system that links them. Titled after former football player Jim Otto, the series explores the training, discipline, and physical limits of the body alongside questions of sexual difference and desire. Featuring an illuminating introduction by Nancy Spector; an essay by Maggie Nelson on the works' exploration of psychology, bodies, image-making, narrative, and abstraction; and a new text by the artist, this generously illustrated volume includes previously unpublished artist's sketches, behind-the-scenes photographs, research material, and video stills. It is the definitive publication on this important series, and offers a key to understanding many of the themes that thread throughout Barney's oeuvre.
