I feel like an idiot because I just found out that I missed the show of “River of Fundament” at the Cité de la Musique in november.
Well what can I say about Barney’s work that hasn’t been said. In my humble opinion he is one of the greatest artists alive. You may not like his work, you certainly don’t need to understanding or get the twist of medium merging he does but it will get to you wether you like it or not. His pieces are so powerfull that each image, drawing or sculpture is in itself an amazing creation.
