Between the 15th of July and the 31st of August we spent a six week MOKS residency in the small Estonian village of Mooste, creating a body of work to address themes that emerged during the first week of our stay.

We have started talking with two members of the Von Nolken family in Germany who gave us access to their family archives. The portrait shown below was taken of the last generation of Von Nolkens who resided in the manor.

On Estonian Independence Day we ran a photo-shoot in the residential area of Mooste, creating a series of out-of-place portraits in which local people are dressed in clothes that the last Von Nolken family might have posed in 100 years ago (or at least as near as could manage).

Special thanks go to the theatre in Tartu for lending us the costumes.

Additional ‘making of’ documentation coming soon.
