Two weeks after the insurrection at the U.S. Capitol, on January 19th, Mark Nelson set off on a solo journey of discovery from his home in Houston. He headed 350 miles south to the U.S. / Mexico border and the Texas Rio Grande Valley to celebrate the end of Donald Trump’s reign as the American President, and to welcome the new leadership.

But, more specifically he went in hopes to find and document Trump’s week-old black sharpie marker signature he had scribed on one of the border walls in Alamo, Texas built by him, Steve Bannon, and their cohorts at the We Build The Wall organization. On that trip he did not find his autograph but he did find a few of his border wall sections to photograph and video tape during the inauguration ceremonies on the next day.

When he returned home to edit the material, a project was born that he would seek out and document south Texas border walls through the duration of Joe Biden’s first term as POTUS. To this date, he has made six project visits, each time exploring and documenting the cracks and crevices of the border walls and fences stretching from Mission to Brownsville.

Following the opening reception, the exhibition will be on display through December 29.
