Overview

In June 2009, the Deste Foundation in Greece opened an impressive new project space: a converted slaughterhouse on the island of Hydra. Inaugurating the space, Matthew Barney and Elizabeth Peyton collaborated on a site-specific installation composed of sculptures, drawings and paintings--mostly themed around food and flesh--and devised a performative presentation of the collaboration by housing several of their works in a vitrine that was immersed 30 feet in the sea, and then raised by divers and borne to the project space during a twilight procession. This book records Barney and Peyton's collaboration with documentary photographs of the works and their facture, the island, the procession and installation.
