RELICS: A New World Rises is a collection of old and forgotten objects housing miniature worlds built of LEGO®. Within each relic, the civilisation has adapted to the distinctive character of the artefact it inhabits. Each display weaves intricate 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. Even more weird and wonderful worlds can be discovered, each with their own strange stories to tell!

Join exhibition creators and Australian LEGO® Masters Jackson Harvey and Alex Towler for their curatorial talk as they explore some of these stories in RELICS: A New World Rises.

About Jackson Harvey

Jackson Harvey has always been passionate about art, with a strong interest in painting and drawing from a young age. He was known as ‘the LEGO® kid’ at his school and spent many late nights building models.

In the years since, he has spent time studying architecture, worked in tattoo shops around the world, and established a successful career in Australia as a mural artist.

Following his 2020 LEGO® Masters win with friend and collaborator Alex Towler, Jackson has built LEGO® sculpting into his art practice. Jackson and Alex have collaborated on several LEGO® projects, and RELICS represents the next exciting step in their journey together.

About Alex Towler

Alex has always felt torn between the worlds of art and science. He began his career as an environmental engineer and worked predominantly with natural waterways and urban stormwater drainage.

He balanced the logical and technical aspects of engineering with his creative passions by forming multiple punk bands with old-school friends and making musical noise at local Perth music venues.

After winning LEGO® Masters with his long-time friend Jackson Harvey, and subsequently creating RELICS, Alex has found a unique way to explore the world between science and art, using creative solutions to solve technical problems.
