In this contribution, I stage the birth, death and resurrection of the ANZAC Memorial dedicated to fallen Australian and New Zealand mounted men in Egypt, Syria and Palestine 1916-18. I begin by re-performing acts in the Memorial’s life and then consider what is at stake in remembering and forgetting the Great War through a material object. I argue that encountering this artefact presents an opportunity to impose, resist and rethink the international legal order's foundational violence and warlikeness.
