An exhibition showcasing ‘The Absurd World of Mack Mathod’ is now on display at the Babylon Gallery in Ely.

“My work, whether performed or constructed, is in the tradition of the Surrealists, Dadaists, the Theatre of the Absurd and post Russian Revolutionary writers and performers,” says the artist.

“I strive to reintroduce humour and stupidity into an over serious contemporary art format, an aspect which I see as an important generic omission since the sixties.

“My present work is printed on handmade paper and presented in antique frames with printed texts to suggest an absurd curated world that we can only view from a distance of time and sobriety.

“My constructed and performed work has a similarly meaningless perspective.”

The exhibition is open from 12pm until 4pm Tuesday to Sunday, but closed on Monday.

Entry is free and donations are welcome.
