“Spanish street artist Isaac Cordal has extended his ‘cement eclipses’ project as part of the BLK river festival in Vienna. the miniature dioramas –
often depicted in a charmingly bleak way – are an ongoing commentary on members of contemporary society blindly subscribing
to regimented existence. often featuring recognizable mass cultural items or activities – such as a shopping cart,
televisions or the act of marriage – the little people are a sculptural metaphor reflecting on a civilization highly urbanized and homogenized.
cordal comments on his work:
”cement eclipses’ is a critic/definition of our behavior as a social mass. this project intends to catch the attention on our devalued relation
with the nature through a critical look to the collateral effects of our evolution. these scenes zoom in the routine tasks of the
contemporary human being.
they present fragments in which the nature, still present, maintains encouraging symptoms of survival.
the precariousness of these anonymous statuettes, at the height of the sole of the passers, represents the nomadic remainders of an
imperfect construction of our society. these small sculptures contemplate the demolition and reconstruction of everything around us.
they catch the attention of the absurdity of our existence.'” – http://www.designboom.com
