Lucy + Jorge Orta continue their fascination for milk containers. Over the years the artists have observed how people all over the world deal with milk as an essential daily nourishment. Milk pays tribute to a seemingly insignificant but in fact rather essential utensil. This artwork was made possible through the collaboration with Royal DSM and dairy farmers in India as well as the Baliehof farm in Jabekke Belgium for the exhibition Wijheizij at the Permekemuseum in Belgium.
