Doug Aitken 'Migration'

  • Posted by on January 21, 2010 in Art
  • Doug Aitken's film installation 'Migration,' in which wild animals of North America are placed in curiously human domains, makes a powerful statement on the domestication of the wild and our isolation from nature. For the piece, the California artist hired animal wranglers from the TV and movie industries to bring the creatures in front of cameras in rented motel rooms.

    The work debuted at the 2008 Carnegie International (called 'Life On Mars') in Pittsburgh.

    Watch a video walkthrough of the installation from when it exhibited at 303 Gallery in New York last summer. Check out the beaver in a bathtub. Wow.
