There were butterflies in his shoes, and snakes coming out of his dictionary. There were butterflies on the ruler too. And the chair? A chair for us to live in. And what's that over there? The Unbuilt Return of Interminateopolis, by Peter Madden.

The Gertrude Contemporary Art Space has another excellent exhibition on - My Own Private Idealogue, with work by Joanna Langford, Peter Madden and Rohan Wealleans. Peter Madden's work was particularly strange and dreamy - cut-outs of snakes, slithering out of a clamped down dictionary; cut-outs of butterflies lining the inside of a pair of shoes; collages with weird things happening everywhere; intricate sculptures with more cut-outs of butterflies, birds and words, and eyeballs and mushrooms, and records, axes, and skeletons, and oh, so many more wonderful images.

I also visited the Lamington Drive Gallery and saw the Desiring Machines exhibition, which had pictures of cars, lawnmowers, etc, with crazy extra engines/mechanical parts, drifting out of them, almost like smoke.

The third gallery I went to was the Dianne Tanzer Gallery, which currently has two exhibitions on. aether by Roh Singh, contained exhibits such as little bubbles that created the image of a 3D jellyfish. Fear of Loathing by Ian Mowbray, was the other exhibition and consisted of snow globes that contained things such as a recently dug grave, and a toilet with a gun next to it.
