Alan Phelan: Cabbages and Things

Friday 29 October – Saturday 27 November 2010
Alan Phelan: Cabbages and Things | Friday 29 October – Saturday 27 November 2010 | Solstice Arts Centre

Cabbages and Things contains two works; paper Cabbages and fabric Things. Both works are made in many multiples, filling the galleries with newsprint cabbages and the piercing stare of superhero ‘The Thing’.

The Cabbages were made in a series of fabrication workshops held in Dublin and Navan over the past two months, continuing Phelan’s interest in not only what art can mean, but the different ways it can be made.

The Things, created by Phelan alone, use individual versions of the cartoon superhero from the net. No one Thing is the same, but all seem emasculated when cut in fabric remnants. Together both works reflect on the nations bleak present; a labyrinth of financial crisis headlines and hopeless heroes who can never save the day.
