Fight Against Maturity

Lego my wall. (Thanks, Geoff.)

German-born artist Jan Vormann, 27, has spent the past three years travelling the world repairing crumbling walls and monuments with Lego. And he wants you to do the same.

His “Dispatchwork” began in 2007 in the small village of Bocchignano, Italy, as part of the contemporary art festival 20 Eventi. Developing the work in situ, he became intrigued by the makeshift repairs that had been made to the crumbling walls. The approach favoured function over appearance, reminding Vormann of the haphazard Lego designs created by children.
