Cremaster 2 On Sale at Sotheby's New York
Here's a rare chance to own one of Matthew Barney's Cremaster films. Sotheby's will be auctioning Barney's Cremaster 2 in their evening sale on November 14 in New York. The winning bidder will receive not only a DVD of the film, but also a custom vitrine and DVD case made from hand-tooled saddle leather, sterling silver, polycarbonate honeycomb, beeswax, acrylic and nutmeg. Sotheby's estimates the artwork will sell for $500,000—700,000.
