These copperworks are the base of my project 'Fantoom'. The copper textures are all made after feelings of phantom pains that I researched for this project. What insterests me about them is how something that is lost, like a limb, can actually be felt so vividly. The pain shows that the lost limb is in fact still excisting in a way. Through the pain, the person becomes, in a way, whole again. These works are created after the idea that nothing is ever really gone, that there will always be things that remain. This project had been made during the first months after my fathers death.
