The End of Eating Everything

The End of Eating Everything

“The End of Eating Everything” is artist Wangechi Mutu’s first animated video, created in collaboration with recording artist Santigold and co-released by the Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University and MOCAtv on YouTube. 

The 8-minute video stars Santigold as a mysterious protagonist who is part human, part cyborg, part flying island, and her own ecosystem. The creature encounters a flock of birds and gulps them voraciously, invoking ideas of consumption. The video features an original soundscape by Mutu, a haunting score of weather, animal and machine sounds.

“The End of Eating Everything” was commissioned by the Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University as part of the new exhibition “Wangechi Mutu: A Fantastic Journey,” the first survey in the United States for this internationally renowned, multidisciplinary artist, and her most comprehensive and innovative show yet. “The End of Eating Everything” can be viewed in person at the Nasher Museum through July 21, 2013.

    This is awesome! Hybrid identity, commentary on the consumer culture. Touching on the the burgeoning most ‘informed yet ignorant’. Love both Artists Wangrechi mutu and Santigold and this is great collaborative work!
