WANGECHI MUTU + SANTIGOLD
Artist, Wangechi Mutu and music’s art-child Santigold collab on this 8 min art video The End of Eating Everything - it’s part of Mutu’s current exhibit A Fantastic Journey being shown at the Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University until July 21st, 2013.
The animated video features Santigold as half cyborg existing in her own ecosystem with a electro-industrial score by Mutu that creates a haunting vibe to echo the artists intent.
In Mutu’s own words, “The End of Eating Everything is a visual conversation about our consumption…it speaks to our empty artistic environment, when art is supposed to be something that keeps renewing us culturally.”
The End of Eating Everything was co-released by both Nasher & MOCA TV.
