First editions in very good to fine condition of all 5 of Matthew Barney's Cremaster books. The Cremaster Cycle is an ambitious work that was made over a period of eight years (1994-2002) incorporating sculpture, films, photographs, and drawings. In an interview with Hans-Ulrich Obrist Barney stated: 'For me it is critical that all of these forms come together as one piece. The films, the sculpture, the photographs, the books. I tend to think non-heirarchically in the way that the different aspects of the Cremaster project are symbiotic. It's the books that end up having the widest distribution, and that interested me in the way that the moving image is slowed down and crystallised in a particular way in the books, and how that informs some of the questions raised in the films and installations. Aspects of the films that are elusive become clearer in the books. For instance, the photography in the books, which is photographed rather than videotaped, tends to have a resolution and a stillness that makes it possible to study the detail in a way that cannot happen in the moving image. The books function as manuals, and bring clues to the narrative questions' (Tate).
