Jimmy Cauty’s ADP 1 returns to Liverpool and finds a new home at The Florrie.
Jimmy Cauty’s ADP 1 has returned to Liverpool and could be here for a while.
ADP 1 will be located The Florrie for the foreseeable future, until it goes back out on tour next year before returning to its now semi-permanent home, and available for the public to visit for free on Tuesdays and Thursdays between 4pm and 8pm with plans to open 5 days a week in the works.
Talking to us about the return of the installation, The Florrie’s Anne Lundon explained how the community plan to best utilise ADP 1;
“The Florrie will be using the ADP as an engagement tool as part of our new education and training programme. Our aim is for every school in Liverpool to come and visit the ADP. Using the art instillation as a participatory training programme also allows us to open up discussions with young people about issues affecting them and how art can influence young people’s thinking in a positive and creative dialog.”
“Jimmy’s support to the Florrie is second to none, he is keen to see the ADP used to support our work in the community and young people in particular having direct access to art within their local communities. People’s reactions to it have been amazing, it brings new people to our amazing Florrie every day and the container itself has become another work of art that people talk about.”
ADP 1 makes up a trio of touring art installations created by Jimmy Cauty, portraying a dystopian post-apocalyptic landscape at a painstaking 1/87th scale. ADP 1 itself is housed inside a 40ft storage container, view-able only through peepholes and is usually found travelling up and down motorways of the UK, stopping to set up in towns and cities who’ve experienced rioting though-out their history.
