Moengo, June 2014 - WELCOME TO THE FUTURE is a triumphal arch for Moengo, Suriname. The gate was made after a series of interviews with local residents and professionals associated with the region.
WELCOME TO THE FUTURE consists of two concrete pedestals, a red-white striped bow, two traffic mirrors, a pinnacle and a small chest filled with contributions of different people from Moengo. The gate is not yet placed. Some Pentecostal leaders protested, saying the arch is idolatrous. About their allegation a discussion erupted in De Ware Tijd, Surinames national newspaper.
WELCOME TO THE FUTURE is made possible by the Mondriaan Fund.
