Isaac Cordal @ BOZAR
After the inception of his first miniature cement men in 2002, four years passed before Isaac Cordal left his first installation on the streets. Since then he has taken the project, coined “Cement Eclipses: Small Interventions in the Big City”, through streets, steps, snow and sand. Next month after having being selected by the jury of the De Canvascollectie Prize, his latest series of photography Slowly Sinking will grace the walls of the BOZAR museum of Brussels. Vernissage 10th May, 2012.Those lucky enough to have seen Cordal’s works in situ would have witnessed scenes of nostalgic reflection, the inexpressive models observing the gravity of the state of the world. Following his first installation of the works in the streets of Vigo in 2006, Cordal developed the project throughout the years keeping to the underlying willingness to “critic/define our behaviour as a social mass”.
Recently the Cement Eclipses project was presented at the Beaufort04 Triennial of Contemporary Art on the beach of De Panne as well as in a local historic villa once occupied by Chalutier. Cordal presented the body of work ‘Waiting for Climate Change’, consisting of ephemeral installations presenting a few stereotypes of people confronting climate change in different ways. The works stay on show until the 30th of Sept, 2012.
Isaac currently lives and works in Brussels. He will have his first solo exhibition at Harlan Levey Projects gallery in October 2012. The Collection RTBF at the BOZAR of Brussels runs from the 10th of May until the 10th of June. Cement Eclipses: Small Interventions in the Big City, is also a hardcover publication available through Carpet Bombing Culture.
Cordal’s project Cement Eclipses is fully available through our online shop.
