Marcel Vidal, Everybody Knows
Paul Hallahan / Marcel Vidal
5 - 18 December 2020
The Complex, Dublin
The Complex Ground Floor Gallery is pleased to present Everybody Knows, an exhibition that brings together the works of artists Paul Hallahan and Marcel Vidal.
Opening on the 5th December 2020, this is the first time the artists have created an exhibition together, presenting painting works by Hallahan and a sculptural work by Vidal. The artists have been interested in The Complex's Ground Floor Gallery since discovering it in 2019 prior to its renovations. The history of this industrial heart of Dublin and its location above what was St. Mary's Abbey fuelled the artists conversations over the last 18 months. Through political, environmental and domestic circumstances, the artists consider not only the past and the present, but also possible futures we may arrive at.
The exhibition takes its title from the 1988 Leonard Cohen song of the same name. Both artists are previous winners of the Golden Fleece Award, Hallahan in 2018 and Vidal in 2019.
