Isaac Cordal is a installation and street artist. Since 2006, he has been engaged in a nomad project called Cement eclipses.
His human figurines, standing only about 25cm tall, are made with cement and then reproduced using silicone moulds. They represent a kind of metamorphosis, whereby man trades his role of citizen for one as a piece of urban furniture.
Hiding among streets, sidewalks and walls in order to transform, little by little, the urban environment in its natural habitat, Cordal embodies the spirit of guerrilla street art.
His work has been installed in urban areas of Berlin, London, Brussels, Liege, Barcelona, and Vigo, among others. Most of the photographs documenting this process were taken in London, where Cordal currently lives.
"I am not completely familiar with Isaac’s work but, I have seen it here and there. When miniatures inhabit the same space we are accustomed to it allows me to look at the space in a different way; a magical way. I enjoy that fantastic element of this work, but because it also has a very dark tone it cuts through that playful, childlike fantasy."
"His mini-artworks between sculpture and street art are intriguing: they create new worlds in our everyday dimension. I really appreciate communicative art and Isaac Cordal is a great example of it!"
