Artist William Heath Robinson's peculiar genius is on display in this recent show with wiggling ducts, jumbles of planks and coils of cable
A group of wonky air-conditioning ducts wiggle into the room, like snakes in search of prey. A ceiling appears to have been hastily shored up with a jumble of wooden planks. And a smoke detector dangles from the end of its cable. There’s a reason for all the artful bodging: they’re part of a shrine to the king of cobbled-together contraptions, the patron saint of make do and mend, William Heath Robinson.
