JAN VORMANN (FR)

Jan Vormann’s global Dispatchwork project uses LEGO bricks to repair damaged walls. He describes the project as “a forum to further develop, piece by piece, a global game together”, one that encourages citizens to take back public space and leave their mark in a playful way. Some of the installations use a handful of toy bricks while others have used up to 20 pounds.

Having started spontaneously patching-up surfaces in Bocchignano, Italy, Vormann has since employed the technique on walls in nearly 40 cities across Europe, Central America, Asia, and the United States. Following his participation in Nuart Festival, Vormann heads to Italy to present a new Dispatchwork at the Venice Architecture Biennal.

“Dispatchwork aims to ignite childhood memories of abstract shapes and vivid colors, towards a global collaboration of persons unknown to each other. A handful of used bricks is all you need to submit a contribution to the project, as long as you don’t mind when the structures slowly ‘dissolve’ or ‘disappear’ back into children’s toyboxes”, he says.

Born in 1983 in Bamberg, Germany, after initial studies in Art History and Conservation of Monuments at Otto-Friedrich Universität Bamberg (2003-2004) Vormann changed his field of studies to Visual Arts (Sculpture) at Kunsthochschule Berlin-Weißensee (2004-2011) with the Professors Karin Sander, Inge Mahn and Berndt Wilde. He graduated with Diploma (2010) and Meisterschüler (2011).

Vormann currently lives in Berlin and works in the T10 Studios. Since 2013, he also teaches in the New Media/Interaction Design department of Berliner Technische Kunsthochschule BTK.
