Remember Me (2016) is an installation of neon sculptures created by artist Steve McQueen. The sculptures each consist of the words ‘remember me’ in different handwriting.

Although every neon sculpture repeats exactly the same two words, each one has its own character. There is a wide variety of handwriting, ranging from childlike, elegant and shaky to almost illegible scribbles. The people who wrote the words call, beg, or whisper through the neon sculptures: remember me!

FENIX will soon feature eighteen of these neon sculptures. Together they fill an entire wall. The installation points out the human right to be seen, gives a voice to forgotten people and is a space for remembrance.

FENIX 2024

After the opening, FENIX you will find contemporary art, photography and historical objects. The collection tells stories about the movement of people around the world. Stories from yesterday, today and tomorrow.
