In Our Fathers’ Footsteps

While refurbishing his family’s estate Pule, Slovene businessman wished to pay tribute to his ancestors by creating an exhibition about hem. A historian searched the archives and a storyline of prominent characters was weaved, who either lived at an important moment in history or were mentioned in the archives for something specific. Life-size figures were commissioned and short imaginary monologues written and then spoken by actors to make these long-gone ancestors come to life as much as possible, as visitors can look at them eye to eye.
