Matthew Barney discusses the Water Castings from his most recent body of work, RIVER OF FUNDAMENT. Each Water Casting is a relic from the performance of foundry casting itself. Weighing between one and two thousand pounds each, each piece objectifies and coalesces the highly involved, fragmented process required to produce it. As Barney says, "its nature, both in terms of form and in terms of surface, come from the moment it's made."
Matthew Barney: RIVER OF FUNDAMENT is on view at The Geffen Contemporary at MOCA through January 18, 2016.
