The installation consists of the glass floats used by Estonian fishermen to keep their nets afloat. These floats come from the village of Nummkula, whose fishermen are famous for catching the biggest fish in Estonia’s recent history. The village is located on the island of Muhu, formerly used for Soviet missile bases. During their presence on the island, the military forbade the fishermen to go to sea, as this was border territory. Morozov’s work was intended for his solo exhibition at PERMM Museum of Contemporary Art, where it would have been an offering from one Finno-Ugric people (Estonians) to another (Komi-Permyaks). The exhibition has been postponed to 2021, and Moscow became, as it often does, a layover in the poetic dialogue between a former colony and today’s provinces.
