Outside Centre’s 2017 Project ‘Wolves in Wolves’ was a sculpture project of Wolves (an animal synonymous with the City) spread across the City of Wolverhampton in the heart of England. Each Wolf – over 2 meters tall on their plinths – were individually designed (on the same mould) by individual artists.
Most notably Clemens Briels, along with the Dutch artist Stef Frideal – and other local and international artists, who designed the Wolf Sculpture for placement within the City of Wolverhampton Art Gallery.
The wolves will be auctioned in November 2017 in aid of the work of Outside Centre. Outside Centre work with Disabled People and are a Disability run and controlled Disability Charity and they are very grateful for Clemens participation and his generosity on the project.
In addition they thank the UK Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands for making this happen. Outside Centre’s website is www.digital-disability.com and the project website is www.wolvesinwolves.co.uk.
