This intriguing exhibition ponders upon one very important question: &lsquo
How does a person access their inventiveness?' Andrew Lanyon has worked with a collective of artists, including Michael Chaikin, Paul Chaney, Peter Fox, Fi Henshall, Chris James, Sam Lanyon, Keith Newstead, Will Schofield, Paul Spooner and Carlos Zapata. The solutions they have created represent the fruit of five years of observation of peoples' inventiveness in different areas. On display will be a quirky mix of sculpture, automata, installations, paintings, drawings and photography all sprinkled with Andrew's trademark wit and ingenuity. This exhibition will be accompanied by a hardback book by Andrew Lanyon.Funded by Arts Council England,
