‘Storage for distorted matter’ is a long-term project, begun in 2008 by Loek Grootjans (The Netherlands, 1955). It archives everything the artist leaves behind mentally and physically: his art, and everything associated with him and his world. He ‘records’ life, but confronts us with the impossibility of succeeding in this.

Grootjans has collected almost everything: his own feces, impossible masterpieces of the twenty-first century, light that Piet Mondriaan first saw when he arrived in Domburg. For ‘Vincent’s Asylum revisited’, the artist focused on gathering many different attributes connected to Vincent van Gogh.
