For four years long non-profit Kunst together with non-profit organization Combat were the logistical organizers of the project ComingWorldRememberMe, commissioned by the provincial administration of West Flanders.
GoneWest, the participatory cultural-tourist programme set up for the WWI centenary, was created by order of the provincial deputation of the provincial council of West-Flanders.
The story of the final land art installation originated in the crossing of a basic idea of curator Jan Moeyaert with the very heart and soul of the oeuvre of artist Koen Vanmechelen. This crossbreed gave rise to the story of the plastic art installation ‘ComingWorldRememberMe’ for ‘GoneWest’, the remembrance and commemoration period for the WWI centenary.
ComingWorldRememberMe was commissioned by the provincial administration of West Flanders as part of the comemmoration project ‘GoneWest/Reflections on the Great War.
