The Van Abbemuseum Collection consists of over 2800 artworks. We publish texts and images on an ongoing basis, but this record is currently in the process of being documented.
Allan McCollum describes his 'Perfect Vehicles' as: ‘an homage to the idea of one thing standing for another.’ Because of the repetition of forms and their arrangement in a straight line, Perfect Vehicles lend themselves to various associations. Works of art serve as vehicles for our ideas. The artist thinks of 'Perfect Vehicles' as a working process. 'Perfect Vehicles' exist in different versions and sizes, all of them monumental in scale.
