THE MOON GOOSE ANALOGUE: Lunar Migration Bird Facility (MGA)

INTRO - The Moon Goose Analogue
 

Agnes Meyer Brandis’ poetic-scientific investigations weave fact, imagination, storytelling and myth, past, present and future. In "THE MOON GOOSE ANALOGUE: Lunar Migration Bird Facility (MGA)" the artist develops a narrative based on Godwin’s The Man in the Moone, in which the protagonist flies to the Moon in a chariot towed by ‘moon geese’. Meyer-Brandis has actualised this concept by raising eleven moon geese with astronauts’ names and imprinting them on herself as goose-mother. They live in a remote Moon analogue operated from a control room within the gallery.
