*above video is a 30 sec excerpt
This artwork is a video/sound art piece part of a series of artworks that focus on the United States/Mexico border wall. The border wall extends from Texas to California in the United States and was built by the American government to keep immigrants from Mexico from entering into the United States. MAL AIGRE is a work about the wall in San Diego, California that extends into the Pacific Ocean. The title, “mal aigre” or “mal aire” (evil air), refers to a common Mexican folk illness caused by bad (or evil) air and can be cured only by a curandero (Mexican folk healer/shaman).
