 LOCAL EVENTS FOR 2019

 JUNE 2019

From now-1 September: Heath Robinson Museum: Tim Lewis: Automata. One of the most popular exhibits in ‘A Curious Turn’, the automata show in 2018, was ‘Mule Make Mule’ by Tim Lewis. This new exhibition will feature a number of Tim’s larger automata and kinetic sculptures selected by the artist and displayed in settings designed by him. Lewis’s sculptures include a variety of machines that react to the people and environment around them. Large scale ‘stroboscopic’ artworks spin and explode with movement and colour. Familiar items such as chairs walk with crutches, and mechanical rabbits, once cuddly, take on a more sinister quality. These works defy easy categorisation but are inspired by the traditions of kinetic art, the development of photography and genetics. The artist’s preliminary drawings and maquettes will also be on display, to provide an insight into Lewis’s distinctive creative process. For opening times and costs, visit www.heathrobinsonmuseum.org.
