Default Art in a Miscellaneous World

Because we need an art miscellany thread. Because :ff: needs to become entirely miscellany threads.

I have only just discovered the Little Mersausage, and at the same time discovered that it's been vandalised.

As will be obvious immediately, it's a reinterpretation of the Little Mermaid statue in Denmark, except with a mer hot dog sausage, and instead of resting on a rock off the shoreline in Copenhagen it rested on a bun sculpture in a lake in Reykjavík.

Spoilerised to give you a moment to visualise it ...

“Hafpulsan” ... takes its name from the combination of the Icelandic words for ‘mermaid’ (hafmeyja) and ‘hot dog’ (pulsa/pylsa)
Quote:
“It’s a hot dog that is sitting like a mermaid on a little bread roll out in the pond,” explained Steinunn. “It’s sitting tall and pleased with itself, but then it’s also a little mer-sausage in a pond, some kind of strange, handless creature that has no idea how powerful it is. It’s also a bit uncanny,” she continued.

Steinunn does, however, acknowledge some gender play in her sculpture. “It is both a mermaid, which is generally female, and also a penis, in that it’s pretty difficult to work with this sausage form without it turning into a penis. But I don’t think that’s a bad thing,” she said.

Steinunn Gunnlaugsdóttir ... seems unconcerned about the damage to her work. "I’m fine with it for me it is just part of putting artwork into public space,” she says.

Three's Company. So problematic. So full of the best physical comedians to ever hit the screen.
