»Your tail will then disappear, and shrink up into what mankind calls legs, and you will feel great pain, as if a sword were passing through you.
You will still have the same floating gracefulness of movement; but at every step you take it will feel as if you were treading upon sharp knives, and that the blood must flow.
If you will bear all this, I will help you.»
The Little Mermaid -
Hans Christian Andersen
A collection of plasters founds on the floor, streets and subway of Milan, thrown away and forgotten, at the mercy of the people who steps over them. A catalog with the date and the streets where was found it.
The series goes with a passage from the fairy tale The little Mermaid by Hans Christian Andersen to recreate the Little Mermaid’s painful pursuit of a desperate love.
