Matthew Barney, Cremaster 2, 1999 [source]

Last night Matthew Barney was in my dream. I met him at a shipping yard; it was an eerily dark night. He was walking under the yellow cast of a single street light. We hollered out at each other, “hey.”

Then he asked me if I’d seen his show. Embarrassed, I said that I had not. We were in Spain, then we moved out of California, and even though I’d been in San Jose for a conference recently, I couldn’t make it up to the city…

“I heard it was good though,” I said, somewhat sheepishly.

“You should see it,” he said, “before it closes.” [Sept. 17]

“What’s your favorite bird?” he said.

“Sparrow,” I said.

“Peacock,” he said.

“Penguin,” I said.

“Mockingbird!” he shouted, while doing jazz hands.
