LUKE PERRY… 'The Anthinaerium'

A mechanical masterpiece celebrating the weird and wonderful of Wolverhampton and the Black Country will be a centrepiece of the festival.

Luke Perry of Industrial Heritage Stronghold Artworks will work with the people of the Black Country to design and build a giant automata that will be displayed at the Mander Centre from the 17th October to the 29th November and then at Newhampton Arts Centre from the 8th December until Christmas.

'The Anthinaerium' - This in old Black Country saying that means something/someone that's all over the place, doesn't quite know who they are or what they're up to - so come along and turn the handle/s to see how the Funny Things machine’s mechanical mayhem unfolds.
