The endearing, tragicomic figures of Swedish artist Joakim Ojanen express familiar emotions in peculiar ways.

The edition’s title references ‘Lillördag,’ a phrase meaning ‘little Saturday’ which has come to be used as an alternative name for Wednesday in Sweden — referencing a cultural trend for treating the day as a mini weekend in the middle of the working week.
