Artist and philosopher Loek Grootjans creates an asylum for Vincent van Gogh. Set up in the courtyard of the BPS22, Vincent's Asylum is a pavilion where some traces of Vincent van Gogh are on show after being collected by Loek Groootjans.

Following the traces of the path of Van Gogh across the road he travelled across Europe, Loek Grootjans collected various traces of the renowned artist over several years. In Provence, he sampled and bottled samples of the ground where Vincent once painted. In Zundert, Holland, he canned the vegetables of the Van Gogh family and bottled water from the source near the artist's family home. All these "imprints" have now found their place in Vincent's Asylum, giving us new perspectives to the legacy of the artist.
