JAMES CAUTY


James Cauty gained fame by a performance in which he burned a million pounds. He's a musician and contemporary artist.
THE AFTERMATH DISLOCATION PRINCIPLE Part IV exibited in Piet Hein Eek's exhibition space shows his preference for distressed scenes in a scaled landscape of 136 square meters. 
It took him and his assistants eight months to built this miniature landscape which is cleverly accompanied by light and sound effects from police radio's. 
At first glance it reminds you of a railway model layout. Watching closely one detects the detailed scenery of a world where all civilians seem to have disappeared and where only the authorities are left. Everything is destroyed but it looks like they have the situation under control. There's no indication to what could have caused the situation and what will happen next.
