'Be Remembered - a monument for Randers' is the second part of an exhibition series made in collaboration with Jens Axel Beck (DK). First part was made in West Chicago in 2012.
With initiative from the local arts community in Randers (DK), we were invited to do an art project in the public space during the annual city festivities. We purposed to place a public raffle booth with only one winner ticket for having a personal, public bust made. We noticed that Randers already had a strong history with busts of ancient heroes such as Niels Ebbesen, a Danish squire who died in 1340, but why not honour a random citizen of today? Randers Municipality didn't like the randomness of the project. Instead, we made a showroom, that illustrated this future vision for Randers.
