Watch Santigold in Short Film

Posted By on Mon, Apr 1, 2013 at 3:49 PM

Born in Nairobi, Kenya, artist Wangechi Mutu is now living in Brooklyn and has recently collaborated with musician Santigold to put together an animated short film.

Titled The End of eating Everything, the film is presented by Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University and MOCAtv on YouTube.

In the description of the video, it says, "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."

Although Mutu is an established sculptor, this is her first endeavor into animated filmography. It is a part of her new exhibition "Wangechi Mutu: A Fantastic Journey," according to Indie Wire.

The video is a three minute excerpt of the actual eight minute short film that can only be viewed in person at Duke's Nasher Museum of Art, which began on March 21 and runs through July 21. Below the clip of the film, there is a video of an interview between Santigold and Mutu about their collaboration.
