This week Jimmy Cauty, one half of the million quid burning KLF and co-founder of The Orb, returns to Liverpool after twenty five years, Getintothis’ Cath Bore has the details.
Following a critically acclaimed appearance at Banksy’s Dismaland, artist and musician Jimmy Cauty returns to Liverpool after 25 years with his Aftermath Dislocation Principle (ADP) Riot Village installation.
Exhibited at The Florrie, ADP Riot Village explores the concepts of freedom and state control in a post-riot urban landscape. Cauty invites Liverpool to witness the aftermath of an uprising, depicted though a fascinating miniature model village encased within 40ft steel shipping container.
Communities have fled.
The rioters are long gone.
What happens next?
Anne Lundon, CEO at The Florrie has been working with the artist to develop a unique programme of community activities as part of ADP Riot Village exhibition. “A Model Community enables you to create your own model of your favourite community building with our series of workshops. Models will be exhibited in the Bernard Grand Hall and Jimmy Cauty will select 10 winners to join him at his London studio.”
“The intricacy of the ADP instillation is so captivating and fascinates art lovers and young children alike. As a community arts venue it’s important to us that everybody has the opportunity to engage so it’s been fantastic to work with the artist to develop our activity programme.”
ADP Riot Village is at The Florence Institute (The Florrie), 377 Mill Street, Liverpool L8 4RF.
Standard opening Saturday, July 9 – July 14, 10am. Last admission at 19.00. Entry by donation.
