A Curious Turn
Moving mechanical sculpture is brought to life in this exhibition featuring 30 pieces of extraordinary automata.
Where: Wolverhampton Art Gallery
Brilliant sculptures are brought magically to life by sequences of cogs, cams, and levers. They have delighted and bewitched people for centuries. Visitors will be able to turn, push and crank to see many of the pieces in action, while newly commissioned films will show other pieces in motion.
From the humorous to the macabre and from the playful to the satirical. Works on show take a look at key automata makers such as Rowland Emett, famous for creating the elaborate inventions of Caractacus Potts in the film Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.
