Bill Drummond, best known to the world as a member of pop pranksters the KLF who went on to burn a million pounds, will have a solo exhibition in Norwich this December.

After declaring they had quit the music business in 1992, Bill Drummond and Jimmy Cauty caused outrage by burning a million pounds in the name of art – recording the process and raising questions about the real values of money.

This new exhibition will document one of Drummond's current projects – he has cut a Richard Long artwork into 20,000 pieces and is selling them for $1 each. Once sold, the money will be buried in Iceland where the original Richard Long artwork was photographed.

Richard Long has been using landscape photography to expand the concept of sculpture since the late 1960s.

The Outpost Gallery is in Tombland, Norwich, telephone 01603 612428. The exhibition runs from December 1 to 19, open Wednesday to Sunday 12-6pm, admission free.
