The remodelling of the Lego bricks, in which Negri stresses relentlessly the constructive potential of the famous bricks, he tries to push the certain substance until it is static bound. The works sway between a childs contruction that has not been finished and a catastrophic deconstruction at the same time. The ironic component is of significant importance.The viewer can feel that Negri would like to move his objects from a playful level to a more dangerous one. Matteo Negri concerns himself with the use of a set of colors that are typically of the pop nature, with the function of reducing the initial mimetic imprinting of his works. The Lego works are covered by a glaze of varnish, sprayed on or added with a crystalline layer which makes the works brighter, as if they were a microscopical version of the original.
