Mermaid’s Ruin reimagines the story of a mermaid we all know by heart. Expecting a blissful world of beautiful birds and sunshine, the little mermaid’s dreams are crushed when she sees that the land of humans is simply not what she had pictured it to be… all that surrounds her is trash and dismal. Sitting in a broken boat, the mermaid wraps herself in the remains of its sailcloth and a telephone cord, saddened by the state of the land which she imagined to be paradise.

Through avenues in politically charged street art and music.
