Loathing in Fear
Build your wall, hide behind it. Be afraid, keep them out. As you suffocate in fear.
Loathing in Fear came to life pretty shortly after Donald Trump became the 45th President of the United States. The imagery is in reference to Maurizio Cattelan's Untitled 2001, which depicts a wax version of the artist breaking into a museum. In the piece, Cattelan describes himself as an imposter, forcing his way into the museum.
I will leave the comparison to the viewer.
