Matthew Barney at Benefit to Purchase Norman Mailer Home

Zimbio has published an album of photos of a hirsute Matthew Barney at benefit to raise funds to purchase the historic Norman Mailer home in Provincetown, MA. The event was sponsored by the Norman Mailer Center and Van Cleef & Arpels and held in honor of auctioneer Simon de Pury (pictured with Barney above). Norman Mailer appeared as Harry Houdini in Barney's Cremaster 2 and his book Ancient Evenings inspired Barney's latest series of works, including Khu, Ren, and Djed.
