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!
RELICS is part of the 2023 DreamBig Festival schools program. You can find out more here.
