From 2014 to 2018, by moulding 600,000 sculptures out of clay, thousands of people from across the world took part in 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. Come and see this impressive installation and honour those who died during WWI.
- From 30 March 2018 till 11 November 2018 the 600,000 sculptures are set up in the Palingbeek park (close to Ypres).
- Entrance to the provincial park and the land-art installation is free.
- Individuals and groups are welcome from sunrise to sunset.
- Is your group arriving by bus? If so, it is advisable to reserve a parking space and time slot via firstname.lastname@example.org
Accessibility - land-art installation
The walk around the installation (blue) takes place over grassed tracks, wooden walkways and hardened paths. This means that during wet weather part of the route can be muddy and slippery. The path leading directly to the viewing platform is hardened and therefore always easily accessible. The part of the route where you can listen to war poetry (red) involves climbing a flight of stairs. This means that wheelchair and buggy users will need to go back they way they came, once they arrive at these stairs. Regrettably, the nature of the ground makes it infeasible to find an alternative solution.
