Father and deceased son. Created based on truthful images about Aleppo.
Nominated for the Van Lanschot Art Prize 2016, audience winner, first casting purchased by Van Lanschot.
A father jumps out of a car and carries his seriously injured son to the hospital. The son is quickly placed on a stretcher. Although the doctor is immediately on the scene, the boy dies. The pain off the father is indescribable. I visualize this enormous tragedy, which unfortunately is a daily reality.
I made this sculpture as a form of prayer for father and son.
