Created by the masterminds behind LEGO Masters, Jackson Harvey and Alex Towler, this exhibition is set to blow your mind with its imaginative storyline and epic models.
Imagine a world where minifigures have taken over and built their own civilisations from the rubble left behind by humans. With 11 incredible models, made from hundreds of thousands of LEGO bricks, you won’t want to miss this world premiere event!
Among the ‘relics’ are a marauding band of inventors who have reverse-engineered a grandfather clock to build a time machine, a cryonics facility nestled inside a vintage refrigerator to keep minifigures in a frosty state safe from the effects of climate change, and a retro arcade with airlocks and elevators that connect a series of gaming machines to form a futuristic spaceport.
South Australian Museum Acting Director Justine van Mourik is expecting RELICS to be a big hit with visitors.
“We have never staged an exhibition quite like this,” she said. “No matter your age, there’s something for everyone to marvel at in these clever worlds.
Kids will love the number of minifigures and all the little hidden LEGO details in each of the relics, while the young at heart and anyone who’s ever owned a LEGO set or a LEGO minifig will appreciate the creativity, engineering and masterful design used to turn everyday items into one-of-a-kind artistic creations of curious worlds with strange stories to tell.
The SA Museum is incredibly excited to be welcoming another world premiere exhibition to the South Australian Museum, with RELICS arriving soon after the highly successful run of Six Extinctions.
