A new exhibition including 20 moving mechanical sculptures is open at the Heath Robinson Museum in Pinner.
The sculptures, which are displayed alongside a series of kinetic artworks, were designed by British artist Tim Lewis and will be on display from now until September 1. The exhibition appeals to all ages.
The works are activated by pressing buttons and turning handles and include Lewis’s popular Mule Make Mule, a mule drawing a portrait of itself when a handle is turned, as shown in last years’ automata exhibition.
Various other creations draw pictures, chopsticks pick up a grain of rice and drop it on a chequer board. Other amazing works include the Crimson Prince, a figure of a ghost moving round a maze and many other thought-provoking artefacts.
Tim Lewis studied at The Royal College of Art and is represented by Flowers Gallery. He has exhibited internationally, and his work is held in public collections including the Arts Council of Great Britain, the British Council and the Walker Gallery Liverpool.
The Museum, located in Pinner Memorial Park, is open Thursday –Sunday and Bank Holiday Mondays from 11am to 4pm.
