The land-art-installation 'CWRM' was an accessible and respectful reminder of the inhumane suffering of millions of people one hundred years ago due to a worldwide armed conflict. Each sculpture of this participatory installation was a peaceful statement from all the project partners and the tens of thousands of godfathers and godmothers that actively helped in realizing the installation.
A new artwork will be installed soon in De Palingbeek. Artist Koen Vanmechelen created the design. This installation will show the big 'egg' from which the small sculptures will roll. The Provincie West-Vlaanderen and Koen Vanmechelen want to give the victims of WOI a final resting place in our history, present and future.
