About the Installation:

Jimmy Cauty’s new installation, ESTATE, looks set to be transported to Edinburgh for a month long residency from the end of May and throughout June 2021.

ESTATE is a dystopian model village experience featuring four abandoned concrete tower blocks at 1:24 scale (approx 2 metres high) housed in a 40-foot shipping container.

The tower blocks each serve a different function in the ESTATE and contain amusing scenes of mass social, economic and environmental devastation.

Produced by L-13 Light Industrial Workshop, ESTATE is hosted in Edinburgh by new producing collective, the Society of Spectacles.

This follows the 2016 residency of Cauty’s previous work, The Aftermath Dislocation Principle, at the Grassmarket in Edinburgh.

ESTATE Edinburgh moves out of the city centre to form part of L-13’s UK-wide MdZ ESTATE Tour, which has already been seen in Hull and Stoke-on-Trent.

ESTATE will be presented off-site adjacent to renowned community owned venue North Edinburgh Arts, 15a Pennywell Court, Edinburgh, EH4 4TZ, next to Muirhouse Library.

ESTATE is viewed either individually or in social bubbles in pre-booked 10-minute slots scheduled every 15-minutes. Viewers then walk through a 40-foot shipping container to explore the tower blocks.

Warning: The experience includes smoke, strobe lighting, wind, loud noise, tiny TV broadcasts, and is suitable for adults and children ages 5+.

ESTATE has been designed so it can be toured and viewed in compliance with Covid-19 hygiene and social distancing measures, and is wheelchair accessible.

As lockdown eases for the time being and the full long-term effects of the Covid-19 pandemic begin to dawn, ESTATE is a glimpse into an uncertain future that looks increasingly familiar.

Advance bookings for free entry to view ESTATE are essential.10-minute viewing slots available to book on Thursdays to Saturdays, May 28th-June 26th (Thu-Fri 10am-4pm, Sat 10am-1pm).
