About The Artwork

Lost Tablet Antonia Graza is an abstract and intuitive mini-monument exploring the languages of architectural form, and the recombinatory quality of cities. She is made from reconfigured Lego. The glue residue, pen markings, teeth marks, and other detritus from the former use of the Lego pieces has been deliberately left in place on the work. The work can be handled without white gloves, however the constituent building blocks are deliberately not glued together. Frequent handling may lead to temporary, yet easily rectifiable, destabilization. The work is three dimensional. It has a sheer face, a dynamic face, and is designed to be seen in the round. The work includes a custom-made powder-coated steel base, in three types depending on the preferred method of display. These are: a flat 300mm diameter circular base for display on a table; a 300mm diameter circular base with one edge folded down (or up) for display on shelf, and a 300mm diameter circular base with one edge folded down (or up) with concealed fixings for affixing to a wall. A custom made 1200mm high cylindrical plinth, or a glass dome are available as optional extras. In addition to being available as a unique object, the work is also available as a small limited edition framed print, a human scale large print (both showing the front and back elevation images only), as an NFT, a postcard, and as a sheet of legal tender stamps.

Jan is an artist and architect based in Melbourne. He is the director of MvS Architects, a researcher and senior lecturer at RMIT Architecture & Urban Design, the founder of +Concepts, designer of Lost Tablets, and a creative sector consultant at Future Tense. Arising from an interest in the complex relationship between human beings and their environments, Jan’s work explores the cultural and societal elements of architecture, and then expresses intuitive spatial discoveries in the coded geometric and spatial languages of the built environment.. His artworks, and his designs of prototypical public and private buildings have received numerous awards, and been published in Australia and internationally. Jan is the founder of +Concepts, a presentation and performance series exploring the insights practitioners have into their own creative and cultural practices. It has hosted over 120 performances from Australian and international practitioners in metropolitan and regional venues in Victoria, NSW, Queensland, Western Australia, and the ACT. Jan’s Lost Tablets project is a series of art works which explore the mysteries of human existence by exploiting tensions between a universally recognisable children’s toy and the grammar of architectural symbols. The works have received honorable mentions for art and architecture awards and featured in the inaugural Quarantine Art Fair in January, and Melbourne Design Week, and were displayed in the virtual Italian Pavilion at the 17th Venice Biennale of Architecture in 2021.
