Waiting for climate change is an installation for the moat of the Château des Ducs de Bretagne, in Nantes, and exposed during the summer of 2013. The installation is composed of 14 floating sculptures that move depending on the wind and the currents of the water.

 

As part of Isaac Cordal’s endeavour to spread his sculptures throughout Nantes, from the Temple du Goût to Place du Bouffay, by way of the Quartier des Olivettes neighbourhood, he has placed a series of characters wearing business suits in the Château moat. Impassive and blasé, they absently watch the water level rise. For the first time, they are life-size, almost as if they were sizing themselves up to Château’s massive ramparts.
