Matthew Barney – Pace Car for the Hubris Pill
Pace Car for the Hubris Pill is a catalogue that was designed by Matthew Barney to accompany his exhibition of the same name that toured Europe in ’95-96. The exhibition included his well known films Cremaster 1, Cremaster 4 and Drawing Restraint 7 alongside lesser known earlier works OTTOshaft, Facility of Incline and Facility of Decline. As with many of Barney’s books, it included stills from the films alongside associated drawing and sculptures. The book contained a number of gatefold pages and the book was held inside a screenprinted vinyl casing, a common feature of many of Barney’s books. The print run was limited to 2500 copies, making the book highly collectible.
