Formed In 2001, Pleix was born out of a meeting between seven artists with different visions but with a desire to come together to mix complimentary approaches and draw on each other’s inspiration. Their work uses creative media, video and electronic music to deliberately misappropriate our surroundings so as to better understand them. Fortunate accidents and the small contradictions of life, now and the day after tomorrow, are the ready-made meals with which the digital collective Pleix likes to feed itself.
Eight installations, illustrating human solitude and rail against over-consumption, will be shown in the exhibition "Future Days by Pleix" at the Cercle Cité in Luxembourg (03.02. - 06.03.2016) within the framework of Luxembourg City Film Festival (25.02 - 06.03.2016).

Monobloc tells the story of the best-selling piece of furniture of all time. Estimates claim there are a billion of these cheap plastic chairs in use all over the world. This unassuming chair threatens our environment and good taste but is indispensable for millions of people to whom a chair is a chair and nothing more. This is the tale of an object viewed through a critical eye on globalisation - a story that spans functionality and beauty, capitalism and sharing, consumption and recycling.
