The artwork ‘De herinnering’ connects then with now. It blurs the line between death and life. Hundreds of metal stones form a symbolic wall. Each stone bears the name of a person who should never be forgotten. In an oasis of peace you can recall memories, sometimes in fresh sadness, sometimes from a distant past. Nearby, a young tree with its roots seeks new life in old soil.
‘The Memory’ embraces you and me and completes the Circle.
