Storage for Distorted Matter

BY LOEK GROOTJANS
@ VOL 5 ON FEB 28, 2013

Loek Grootjans (b. 1955 in Arnemuiden) collects and keeps a record of whatever touches him as an artist and a human being. In 2008 he launched Storage for Distorted Matter, a wide-ranging project that sets out to register and store life. Thus for many years the artist collected the dust in his studio, as well as Vincent van Gogh’s native soil; he also stored the water in which drowned bodies washed ashore on the Dutch island of Vlieland.
