London, Apr 17 (ANI): A Mexican artist is serving breast milk cheese and crackers at the launch of a wacky London art exhibition.

Raul Ortega Ayala has used donated breast milk to create his latest culinary offering to the art world, reports The Daily Express.

Entitled Alejandra Ortiz-Reynoso - after the person that donated the milk - the piece is supposed to “explore our first encounter with food emphasising its territoriality and boundaries.”

A spokeswoman told Express.co.uk: “He makes the cheese in the normal way - it’s just a standard process. The women donate the milk to him voluntarily.”

The rep revealed that the cheese served at the launch would be served to art-lovers on crackers. However, there would be “no pickle” to accompany the snack.

It is the second work in a food-inspired series called At Your Service, showing at the David Roberts Art Foundation in central London.

Ayala’s next piece - called Obituary Menus - will consist of a string of ten menus showing what “presidents, public figures, mass murderers and cave men” munched before dying. (ANI)
