The following video is a conversation between artist Wangechi Mutu and musician Santigold about their video collaboration The End of Eating Everything. You can view a 3 minute teaser of the video HERE, courtesy of MOCAtv. The video was commissioned by the Nasher Museum at Duke University as part of Wangechi Mutu: A Fantastic Journey, the first survey in the United States for this internationally renowned, multidisciplinary artist. The End of Eating Everything can be viewed in full at the Nasher Museum through July 21, 2013.
The 8-minute video, marks the journey of a flying, planet-like creature navigating a bleak skyscape. This “sick planet” creature is lost in a polluted atmosphere, without grounding or roots, led by hunger towards its own destruction. The animation’s audio, also created by Mutu, fuses industrial and organic sounds.
