Opening Tour and Talk by Jimmy Cauty
17:00 - 19:00
The Aftermath Dislocation Principle is a vast 1:87 scale model landscape which is desolated, deserted, destroyed, burnt and devoid of life apart from 5000 or so model police that attend this apocalyptic aftermath. Jimmy Caulty will speak about this work and take you on a disaster tour.
Small scenes of the landscape are also captured in glass jam jars. Functioning as both an exhibition and gift-shop, these scenes are also for sale.

The works of Jimmy Cauty are radical , responsive and darkly comical. He produces work that draws on and responds to contemporary culture, very often sampling it and sending/selling it back as recoded realities.
From painting the multi million selling hippy poster The Lord of the Rings as a teenage artist in the 1970s to a string of global top ten hits as co founder of The KLF , The Justified Ancients of Mu Mu , and The Orb to implementation of the The K-Foundation and the seminal actions, The 1994 K Foundation Award and Watch the K-Foundation Burn a Million Quid , (1994) to later artistic experiments with sonic weapons, Advanced Acoustic Armaments , anti Iraq war postage stamps with Stamps of mass destruction and model making A Riot in a Jam Jar.
