"Serving / To serve" Monument - Poperinge

History (Source: Wikipedia) 

The monumental work of art "Serving / To serve" by Dutchman Anno Dijkstra was unveiled in the city park of Poperinge. This is a reference to the war.


“In my imagination I gently tilt the monument. The reclining base appears to be a funnel. Do we hear the enthusiasm of the first weeks of the war, the homesickness, the pride, the doubt, the roar of dying or cries of victory? ”, Anno Dijkstra articulates his artwork. In 2016, a scale model of the sculpture was already included in the Watou Arts Festival. Afterwards, a model of the full-size image was presented in the Gasthuis Chapel.
