Breast milk cheese served at art show

Cheese made with breast milk has been served at the launch of a new art exhibition in London.

Mexican artist Raul Ortega Ayala named the show “Alejandra Ortiz-Reynoso”, after the woman who donated the milk, the Daily Express reported.

The cheese is designed to “explore our first encounter with food, emphasising its territoriality and boundaries”, according to the artist.

A spokeswoman said: “He makes the cheese in the normal way – it’s just a standard process.

“The women donate the milk to him voluntarily.”

The cheese was served simply, with a more traditional accompaniment of crackers.

Ayala’s next work, “Obituary Menus”, will recreate the food which presidents, public figures, mass murderers and cavemen ate before they died.
