A ship sets out for the Antarctic laden with a mass of molten petroleum jelly. When the ship reaches the Southern Ocean and the petroleum jelly turns into a sculpture, a game takes place between two passengers on the top deck of the factory ship. Drawing Restraint 9 by Matthew Barney breaks the narrative frame into several pieces : first a feature length film, then a sculpture and a set of drawings. These elements are put together in the manner of a storyboard. The Drawing Restraint cycle is an extended oeuvre that ranges from discipline to transcendence. In it Matthew Barney, using various voluntary constraints, has been continually pushing back the limits of the human body and its representation, and experimenting with the creativity induced by obstacles and repression. His performances in sculptural environments stimulate a paradoxical desire – indulged whatever the cost – based on the antagonistic relation between body and mind.
