100 years after the Battle of Messines, on 10 June 2017, the Kraterfront [Crater Front] will be held: an event incorporating images and sound in the middle of the historical crater landscape of Heuvelland. During a live soundscape by the Canadian formation Godspeed You! Black Emperor, light and historical and contemporary images will be integrated into the landscape by artist Shelbatra Jashari.

Thousands of candles, created by the top years of the primary schools in West Flanders, will further illuminate the environment. Fluorescent blue, whiteyellow
candlelight, historical images and the scarred landscape form the basic elements of this sculpture installation and an ode to how light
can give new life to the region’s landscape.
