Ramón Jiménez Cárdenas introduces his Mending Wall series comprised of eight grappling hooks designed to combat President Trump's proposed border wall prototypes. The new series aims to shed light on the modern issues that exist with the matter poetically and politically. Each hook is constructed of rebars and boast a structure that grasps onto wall peaks. The name of the range recalls a cognominal poem written by American writer Robert Frost, which tells the story of two neighbors that meet every year to repair a wall that divides their space.

Ramón Jiménez Cárdenas explains that the relationship between Mexico and the United States has never been simple, but it doesn't change the fact that the two are forever connected. Every silhouette is meant to represent the top of the right proposed border wall types and with each one, comes a grappling hook to represent a solution.
