RELICS: A New World Rises
RELICS: A New World Rises is an exciting new touring exhibition premiering at the South Australian Museum in 2023 by artists/creators Alex Towler and Jackson Harvey, winners of Channel 9 LEGO® Masters in 2020.
RELICS: A New World Rises is a collection of old and forgotten objects housing miniature worlds built of LEGO®. Each display weaves intricate LEGO® constructions into unique objects to evoke a sense of nostalgia and ignite fresh curiosity, inviting audiences young and old to explore the world within a world.
Within each relic, the LEGO® civilisation has adapted to the distinctive character of the artefact it inhabits. A marauding band of inventors have reverse-engineered a grandfather clock to build a time machine. A cryonics facility, nestled inside a vintage refrigerator, maintains mini figures in a frosty stasis to keep them safe from the effects of an overheated climate. In a retro arcade, airlocks and elevators connect a series of gaming machines together to form a futuristic space port. Even more curious worlds can be discovered, each with their own strange stories to tell!
School groups wishing to visit RELICS can book their visit here.
