Matthew Barney – Black Metal Pig Roast

Recently Matthew Barney opened his studio in Long Island City for a free black metal pig roast. Six bands rocked the crowd for the duration of this primitive gathering. Barney was on hand roasting and carving the sacrificial offering.

I have a lot of respect for the work of Matthew Barney. The heavies of the art community may balk at this recent action but he’s reduced me to genuflection. This dark gesture was the happening of the season.

    i too love barney. i love to remember and visualize the scene in C2 where morbid angel’s frontman is just “phoning it in,” all covered in bees. like an actual bad ass. in the photo blog for this post, i was most intrigued by the band? is it? or a person? named atropos. my most extreme props to matthew barney for showing how it’s done.
