James Cauty and Son Collaborate at The Aquarium
James Cauty.
LONDON.- The legendary UK artist James Cauty and his 15 year old son Harry will be collaborating for the first time at The AQUARIUM L-13 gallery for their multi-media assault and Cartoon Art Gift Shop show: ‘SPLATTER’“Wicked!!” They’re so good they could almost be real!” – Olivia Fletcha James Cauty, founder member of the revolutionary pop groups The Orb, The JAMMS, KLF and art organisations K-Foundation, Blacksmoke and the recently closed subversive stamps collective C.N.P.D, has worked alongside his teenage son to create an iconoclastic and disruptive body of new works. The Cautys’ new project employs hijacked popular cartoon characters and liberated animations, to violent, shocking and entertaining ends, all of which will be part of their own specialist cartoon art gift shop. The Cauty animated collection will be degraded, overlaid & looped, fractured, and repeated on multiple LCD screens, presenting the viewer with unrelenting acts of bloody, cartoon violence, which, in cartoon law, ultimately cannot cause fatal injury. In classic Cautys’ style, the new works present a continuous exploration of subverted and re-coded reality (with its own fun soundtrack).

The show by jCauty&Son warrants laugher, discomfort and wants to provoke thought on violence and our media saturated culture. Each work will be given a charismatic title taken from violent acts of death and destruction, employing recent military campaign code names, and forms of torture used by international security forces. A glossary of terms will be published to explain these titles. Furthermore, in a pastiche of the real world, THE AQUARIUM L-13 will produce a vast array of merchandise to support and fund this project, including original draft collages and drawings, life size models, limited edition animation cells and prints, badges, balloons and fake blood. Everything will be for sale and 25% of all profits will be donated to Amnesty International. N.B. For security and copyright reasons, only censored images will be available until the exhibition opens.
