Artist JR’s Installation Sees A Toddler Peering Over The US–Mexico Border Fence As A Statement On Immigration

In September 2017, less than a week after the US administration announced its plans to put an end to the DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) immigration programme, street artist JR erected 70-foot scaffolding showing a one-year-old Mexican boy named Kikito peering over the rusted US–Mexico border fence separating the Mexican city of Tecate and California.

With all of the innocence and curiosity that one would expect from a toddler, JR’s enormous, towering image of a smiling Kikito is a statement in respect of the ongoing immigration issues engulfing the United States of America, not least since the election of Donald Trump’s administration.
