EXCUSE ME, WE NEED SOME SPACE
Working with a real size print of one of the prototypes for the border wall along the frontier between Mexico and the United States, I occupy public space through a performance, confronting people with the physical dimension of the wall as a way to begin to understand and question the human implications of a plan of this magnitude.
By taking the prototype out of its context and confronting it with a new one, people will be faced with the dimension of the wall in their reality — their own country, city, neighborhood. Consequently challenging our fear of the other, the roles we play in public space and the empowerment that comes from its occupation.
MATERIALS: Big format color print in PVC mesh, eight fluorescent vests.
DIMENSIONS: 9 x 9 meters, 81 m2 or 0,0028% of the total length of the USA-MEXICO border.
