Idea Code 15309


The myth surrounding Vincent van Gogh has resulted in an enormous interest in everything he touched, wrote, made, or observed. Needless to say, it is sometimes hard to distinguish fact from fiction when it comes to this prodigy of modern art. In April 2015, ‘Salvo’ resided for a month in Zundert, the village where Van Gogh grew up, and assimilated all kinds of stories that still live there. In the process, new stories were created; new facts were discovered. Published as a slipcase with five booklets, the results form a varied and objective analysis of drab brick houses, ‘Starry Night’ colour samples, untimely collaboration, pencil reproduction, and fascination with potatoes.
