The Body as a Matrix [electronic resource]: Matthew Barney's Cremaster Cycle

With the five-part Cremaster Cycle of films, multi-award-winning artist Matthew Barney invented a densely layered and interconnected sculptural world that surreally combines sports, biology, sexuality, history, and mythology as it organically evolves.

The locations, characters, and symbols that organize the Cycle films; the Cycle installations as spatial content carriers and extensions of the performances; and objectification of the body and undifferentiated sexuality are addressed, as are the intricacies of costuming, makeup, and sculpting with Barney's signature materials: plastic, metal, and Vaseline.

Markus Raetz [electronic resource]: The Artist as Magician

The word "YES" morphs into "NO." A man with a hat becomes a rabbit. A human face doubles as the space between two other faces.

In this program, the Swiss artist allows cameras into his studio to record his creative process and working methods. From simple, whimsically curved wires to meticulously layered wood sculptures, the documented pieces-interwoven with commentary from members of Raetz's inner circle-reveal his conceptual and technical prowess.

Viewers meet Mark Burry, the New Zealand architect charged with deciphering Gaudi's design patterns, which rely heavily on organic sculptural motifs encoded in mystifying plaster models. Burry's innovative use of aeronautical design software as well as the contributions of traditional artisans enliven this fascinating final chapter in one of architecture's great sagas.
