Okayafrica Video: Wangechi Mutu's Guide To 'A Fantastic Journey'
Okayafrica recently caught up with artist Wangechi Mutu for a private tour of A Fantastic Journey – her ongoing exhibition at the Brooklyn Museum – and a chat about the collected body of work, which includes Mutu’s animated short film The End Of Eating Everything starring Santigold. Mutu talks about how her upbringing in Kenya and how that experience – particularly attending Catholic schools – has figured into her work with collage and film. She also discusses the role of sexuality in her work, her thematic efforts to rework the ideal of the Madonna and a lingering desire to return to Kenya.
