Sushi of Love

I went an saw "Drawing Restraint 9" yesterday, the latest movie by Mathew Barney, also starring his wife Björk and the entire crew of a Japanese whaling factory ship... Didn't see any of his "Cremaster" movies, but this was mind blowing... right from the beginning: You see some kind of stone up close, while the camera slowly zooms out, you see that it is an eye of a statue or something. As it zooms out further, you realise it can't be an eye - it's just something lying on a table... but just when you realise it can't be an eye, it sheds a tear...

Here Matthew and Björk are cutting each other into sushi of love and so transforming themselves into whales?!? Or something... :
