His films inhabit a surreal, opulent, mythological universe of satyrs, faeries, parliamentary sheep and roving body parts, and his latest, Cremaster 5, is no exception. Featuring erstwhile Bond girl Ursula Andress as the opera-singing, Jacobean-style Queen of Chain, the film takes place in Budapest - in the proscenium arch of the city's Opera House and at the bottom of the Danube, where water nymphs are attaching pigeons to the crotch of the Giant (played by Barney himself, above, swathed in layers of latex). And that's not something you see every day. ('Cremaster 5': Metro, W1, 0171 734 1506, Fri to 26 Mar. Matthew Barney will also be giving a talk on Sat).
