"The End of eating Everything" is an excerpt of 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, "The End of eating Everything," 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.
"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, and at the Brooklyn Museum from October 11, 2013-March 9, 2014. A version of this video is also shared at http://nasher.duke.edu/mutu/art.php and http://www.brooklynmuseum.org/exhibit...."
