Wangechi Mutu: The End of eating Everything

Wangechi Mutu’s animated video The End of eating Everything features the singer Santigold as a post-apocalyptic being hovering in a darkened sky. Her bulbous, tumor-like body, covered in human limbs and machine parts, throbs and emits plumes of smoke as she greedily devours a flock of birds. Mutu’s monstrous creation suggests the destructive—and ultimately self-imposed—nature of our drive to consume.

This video is shown in conjunction with the exhibition Making Africa: A Continent of Contemporary Design, on view in our Butler Gallery from October 14, 2018 through January 06, 2019.
