Jimmy Cauty’s ADP

The Aftermath Dislocation Principle (ADP Riot Tour 2016)

CHAOS ON THE STREETS OF BRISTOL

Jimmy Cauty’s (The ADP Riot Tour 2016)

The fine city of Bristol has never witnessed such devastating scenes of destruction and chaos. So it will come as great comfort to citizens to learn that it is on an incredibly small scale---1:87 to be precise---and safely contained within a 40ft shipping container, as part of a surreal model village experience visiting the city.

The Aftermath Dislocation Principle (ADP) is a post-riot landscape created in miniature by acclaimed artist Jimmy Cauty -- co-creator of chart-topping band The KLF and its subsequent, million pound-burning arts incarnation The K Foundation.

Following The ADP's critically-acclaimed appearance at Banksy's Dismaland last summer, the installation has taken to the road, re-housed in a specially converted shipping container, which will open its doors to visitors across the country, at the sites of historic riots.

The ADP Riot Tour's visit to Bristol on 29th April will see it take up residence at The Trinity Centre, opposite the Trinity Road Police Station, instrumental in The St Pauls Riot of 1980, which saw black and white youth stand up to police harassment.

Far from inciting another riot, the event's organisers hope the experience will be a peaceful and thought-provoking one, with the only real disturbance being the constant chatter of miniature police radios, dotted all over the exhibit.

 

The exhibit launches Friday 29th April when Jimmy Cauty will be on hand to discuss the work alongside local historians, 6pm - 10pm.

The ADP will then be open daily 10am - 7pm, until Saturday 7th May, and 12noon - 9pm during Trinity Garden Party, Sunday 8th May.
