When I heard that an actual one tonne of white Lego bricks will be scattered across large tables in Tate Modern’s Turbine Hall this summer, I knew it was something I had to go and experience.
The Lego project is the work of the artist Olafur Eliasson, the subject of a major retrospective opening at the gallery which I have yet to go and see. It’s meant to be AMAZING but I’m waiting for the summer holidays to be over so I can actually enjoy it.
This particular project gives you an opportunity (over three weeks) to create what they hope or imagine will be the city of the future.
Even as an adult I love Lego and how creative you can get with it. This is one of the coolest exhibitions I’ve been to in a really long time. the fact that there were all different people of different ages and races sat side by side, mostly in silence, just being creative and having fun. No rules, just endless creativity.
I also liked that the exhibition wasn’t timed so you could spend as little or as long as you want at the exhibition. It’s definitely worth a visit if you’re in London.
The task that is facilitated at Tate Modern exhibition in London will keep running until 18th August, 2019. It welcomes individuals from everywhere throughout the world, of all ages, to add to the piece.
