Jimmy Cauty

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.

The exhibition will run until the 31st of August and is a collaboration with Piet Hein Eek

The Aftermath Dislocation Principle disaster tour - Juli - augustus 2014. Stap de bizarre, verdraaide wereld binnen van muzikant, producer, kunstenaar en culturele provocateur Jimmy Cauty. The Aftermath Dislocation Principle is een enorm landschap, met een schaal van 1:87. Het is verlaten, vernietigd, verbrand en verstoken van het leven, afgezien van 5000 of meer modelpolitie die deze apocalyptische nasleep bijwoont. Met deze donkere, humoristische en tegelijk zenuwslopend dystopische wereld, drukt Cauty zijn fascinatie uit voor subversie Irati
