Watch: 'The End Of Eating Everything' An Animated Short By Wangechi Mutu w/ Santigold

It's actually only a 3-minute excerpt from the 8-minute short work of animation titled The End Of Eating Everything, the first of its kind by artist Wangechi Mutu, whose name has come up a few times on this site over the years. She's not a filmmaker specifically, but she has done some work that I'd consider cinematic (like this one).

End Of Eating

It's actually only a 3-minute excerpt from the 8-minute short work of animation titled The End Of Eating Everything, the first of its kind by artist Wangechi Mutu, whose name has come up a few times on this site over the years. She's not a filmmaker specifically, but she has done some work that I'd consider cinematic (like this one).

I'd put her in a somewhat similar category as Steve McQueen, in that they're both artists, first and foremost, and they can work and exist in different artistic spaces. She has yet to really make any giant leaps into filmmaking like McQueen has; but if she did, I'd be really curious to see what comes out from that creative mind of hers.

The End Of Eating Everything was made in collaboration with recording artist Santigold (who *stars* in it), and co-released by the Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University (they commissioned it) and MOCAtv on YouTube. 

Here's a description:

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 is part of the new exhibition "Wangechi Mutu: A Fantastic Journey," which is said to be the first survey in the United States for the internationally renowned, multidisciplinary artist, and her most comprehensive and innovative show yet.

Here's the 3-minute excerpt. When the full film is online, we'll share it here. But, in the meantime, if you want to see the entire work, you'll have to do so in person, at the Nasher Museum. 

Underneath the excerpt, watch an interview with both Mutu and Santigold, discussing the collab:
