The Frankfurter Kunstverein made a nice play around the notion of stand-up comedy and its values -the aspiration to provoke a response- for their offsite project, 'A Delicious Feeling of Confidence' which was dedicated to comedian Lenny Bruce and Andy Kaufman, the self proclaimed practitioner of anti-humour and absurdist performance. Welsh artist Maria Pask took up the mantle of absurdity, the upturned expectations (Metal music as conduit for Buddism), and interacting with the made-for-television robot 'race' of Daleks. Surprisingly entertaining!
