James Cauty gets a little bit apocalyptic

Feeding destruction

The exhibition is called James Cauty, The Aftermath Dislocation Principle Parts I and II, part of the Frieze month of art in London town and quite something to behold.

James Cauty has created a politically aggravated piece which shows a cityscape once it has been ravaged by some form of mass destruction, it appears all humans have been killed apart from the Police and the Media. Interesting that the only ones to survive would be those who would control the message and the fallout of such a disaster.

The Arch 402 gallery on Cremer St nr Hoxton tube features a just one piece and it is impressive in it’s size and scale, it is at chest height so you are looking at the scenes unfurl at a perfect height. Amongst the destruction there are little signs of humour such as the KFC sign changed to say ‘Jimmy made us do it’ (as in Savile) or one of the Police figures playing golf as the city burns, or the masses of Police feasting at Burger King and playing on a slide or numerous other pieces that you can find yourself.

Another little side note is to say that Mr Cauty is formerly one half of KLF and also a part of Orb.
