Book review: something is missing here is a deeply existential picture book

With the wayward and award-winning debut album ”Molly & Sus”, a chamber play about a pair of twins who are born with long braids that are stuck together, established himself in Klara Persson as one of the country's most interesting bilderbokskonstnärer.

Seven years have passed and with them, the four own Perssonska works about belonging, security, love, forward motion and freedom in a mixed aesthetics, who sometimes quarrel and sprout, sometimes dazzles.

book review: Klara Persson's ”Molly & Sus” is similar to nothing else

& Sus” and Augustpris-nominated ”Maximilian & Minimilian” (2013) revolved around a renegotiation of the terms and conditions in relationships which, at times, may seem narrow and pre-determined because rollsättningen distributed only on the two, is the new picture book instead of a lack of a we. The movement is therefore opposite, and the opposition turned to the infallsrikt bilderboksberättande there are many of the in the Clear Perssons bibliography.

”something is missing here”, there is no mirror and thus no one to free themselves from, what's berättarjag – a single V in stylish gray pants – experience against a black background that enhances the current emptiness inside the home's walls; ”Even if I stretched out my hands as far as I could touched the nothing. There was something right next to me.”

Far away, but just next to the sea, experiencing a mintgrönt In, also in gray pants, a similar nothingness that it is attempting to deaf with the everyday chores like writing shopping lists, shop and cook food against a white background. But the food never seems to be enough, something is missing more, but what? A screw, one hundred dollars, a password?

book review: Klara Persson and Karin Cyréns ”Soren Soren Soren”

funds and a flat graphic imagery that mixes pastel with muted accent colors of brown paint, Klara Persson, also a designer, a story of the longing for absolute togetherness in a time where gadgets, technology, and freedom of choice takes a much larger part of our thoughts in the claims. At the same time updates the she the conventional bokstavsboken by stressing the fact that the individuals work together and form a whole, both figuratively and literally.

”something is missing here” is an accessible, sweet caramel, whose wrapping paper hiding a deep existential depiction of love and the applicant in a time where everyone is expected to know where they are going and what they want.
