De Jeugd van Tegenwoordig, Elektrotechnique LE
Lernert Engelberts (1977) and Sander Plug (1969) are two highly talented Dutch artists based in Amsterdam. They create high-concept art films and installations, with simple but stunning art direction, all driven by their subtly dry, cheeky sense of humour.
Vacuum cleaner, tissues, crates, books, bottles, plastic bags, shoes, mattresses, stool, broom, folding bed, rope, hairdryers, candles and melons.
Planned and ordered mechanisms are used to let the simple materials produce the noise they are making.
The Dutch band De Jeugd Van Tegenwoordig asked Lernert and Sander to create a music video for their song Elektrotechnique. They made a series of domestic sex machines. It’s really inspiring to see how simple daily used objects can create an moving (sound-making) installation, in this case sexual installations.
