From 2014 to 2018, by moulding 600,000 sculptures out of clay, thousands of people from across Flanders and the rest of the world take part of the making of the installation ComingWorldRememberMe. Each and every sculpture represents one of the 600,000 victims who lost their lives due to WWI in Belgium. In this way, different generations and nationalities will be united in the commemoration.

Attend one of the workshops in Nieuwpoort or Ypres to make a sculpture (till March 2018).

In March 2018 the 600,000 figures of ComingWorld-RememberMe will be set up in the Palingbeek park (Zillebeke) between two large works of art by Koen Vanmechelen. The land art installation will spread out over no-man’s-land and The Bluff, site of one of the most intensive battles ever in Flanders. From 30 March till 11 November, the land art installation will be open to the public. At various spots along part of the walk around the installation, you can listen to war poetry. You can end the walk on the observation bridge, from where you will have a wonderful view of this impressive land art installation.
