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 worked with the people of the Black Country to design and build a giant automaton that is being displayed at the Mander Centre until 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.
