Blyn's "Coda" focuses on Matthew Barney's 2003 Cremaster installation.
AS MATTHEW BARNEY COMPLETED THE FINAL CUT OF CREMASTER 2, THE SECOND FILM IN HIS EPIC QUINTET - EPISODES 1, 4, AND 5 ARE BEHIND HIM; NO.
The "Cremaster" series layers biology and history, multiplies and divides; like any thick, opaque text, it drives the critic either to wax vaguely lyrical or to perform iconographic contortions, numerology, advanced exegesis.
