Matthew Barney: Redoubt

Matthew Barney: Redoubt is a comprehensive catalogue of the artist’s newest project, which centers on a two-hour film that creates a complex portrait of the American landscape by layering classical, cosmological, and American myths about humanity’s place in the natural world. In the film, the goddess Diana and her two attendants traverse the rugged terrain of Idaho’s Sawtooth Mountains in pursuit of the elusive wolf. An Engraver (played by Barney, b. 1967) furtively documents their actions in copper engravings and provokes a series of confrontations.
