Video art “Last Season” is the lastest piece of work from Amsterdam artists Lernert Engleberts and Sander Plug.  It is  all about unmaking. Designer fashion shop owner Kiki Niesten wanted to create an innovative window display for her downtown Maastrich store during the TEFAF Art Fair.  She asked the artist duo to make a project using last season’s sweaters.

What did they come up with?

They took these sweaters and unravelled them.

The artists sat across from each other and slowly pulled apart sweaters by designers like Prada, Jill Sander, Celine and Chloe, simply turning them into balls of yarn.
