Zine No.28 in the Hato Press Zine Series: The Processss by Lars Brønseth
Since the first meeting between Hjelm and Bronseth on a Go See 10 years ago, the two have helped each other out in various projects. Their relationship draws upon a yearn for authenticity and performance at the same time. What starts as a real situation ends up in a performative one, and later the opposite, rendering Carl and Lars unable to tell where they started.
The Processss is a visual diary of Norwegian photographer Lars Bronseth's life over a 6 month period. It documents everyday living with his friend Carl in a small apartment in Stockholm, with them both trying to navigate the world as newly singles in the Covid-era.
Throughout the period, they shared home and created an imaginary world culiminating in an extensive tattoo collection, Hjelm’s new persona ‘Cry Laugh Emoji’ and 200 drawings of a duck getting a ball in the head.
