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. For De zaak Piet Mondriaan, part of Storage for Distorted Matter, Grootjans collected the light that Mondriaan must have seen when he first arrived in Domburg in 1908. The result is an installation at De Kabinetten van De Vleeshal, entitled Storage for Distorted Matter (Case P.M.). P.M. stands for Piet Mondriaan
