HANS CHRISTIAN ANDERSEN & YAYOI KUSAMA
THE LITTLE MERMAID

Following Louisiana's Kusama exhibition Yayoi Kusama and the museum in collaboration produced this new, illustrated edition of Hans Christian Andersen's fairy tale The Little Mermaid. The illustrations are taken from Kusamas series Love Forever from 2004-2007, supplemented with a few new drawings.

The interaction between the classic fairy tale and Kusamas drawings open for new readings and a current understanding of the depth of the Hans Christian Andersen's knowledge of human nature.
