ARTIST IS BUILDING a CHEESE WALL at the U.S.-MEXICo BORDER

Our Goal: 1,000 ft long of Spoiled Cheese

Expose the Waste Behind a Border Wall

Help us make this wall longer. Although the blocks are made from SPOILED milk, it is expensive to fabricate them. Each block is individually made out of hard cheese and costs $100.00.

We were funded for 200 blocks- 25-foot long wall - but we can extend it to 1000 feet with your DONATIONS and PURCHASES.

HELP US BUILD THE LONGEST CHEESE WALL.


BUILDING THE CHEESE WALL


 

“When art becomes reality is that special moment when there is no return. A lot of art is just an object in space, you can move it from one place to another, however, when you cover a room in cheese or ketchup or any other perishable, you can’t rip that off, the experience is so real and lives in our minds where the only way to experience it again is through photographs. We have an expiration date here in our planet and the only way we can last is through a documentation of our being. This wall is a documentation of our times, this is a moment where we are talking about an issue, about walls…”

 
 

“As an immigrant child, we were always look upon us as outsiders. I understand the outsider point of view very very well. I’ve never fit in, in fact what I’ve learnt is that if you want to fit in, you must stand out to fit in.”

“I don’t like walls. So this is a wall that I can handle, this is a wall I can live with, because this wall is a perishable, it will not last. The cheese is spoiled. It just means that for the regulations it’s not to be consumed.”

 

“Every time I use my hands I see my grandparents. I see the builder and I see the cook. I am using these hands to make art. They were also making art; it was just a functional art and it was useful to people.  One was making food to consume and the other one was making for things to last… a bridge, a wall, a retaining wall. I am doing it differently in a way that I know how to live my life, in the way it makes sense to me, I express my voice in that way.”
