This land art Installation is a creation by Belgian artist Koen Vanmechelen. It continues the story told by the temporary installation that was displayed in the Palingbeek park near Ypres in 2018. ComingWorldRememberMe (CWRM) consisted of 600,000 sculptures for 600,000 names, a reference to the number of victims who died on Belgian soil during the First World War. With this permanent installation of the same name, Koen Vanmechelen gives the victims a final resting place in our history, our present and our future. The big egg is at the centre of the installation. The small sculptures roll from it in an organic manner, almost as if they are being born. They are the children of a torn world. The whole represents a map of the world, with all the continents connected.
