Belgium

 

Du vendredi 1 mai au mercredi 30 septembre (de 09:00 à 17:00)

 

The last few months I’ve been working on a new installation called The School for ARTour Biennial. My participation in the exhibition, entitled The old new slavery, was completed with three other artwork already presented in 2013 (The Family, Follow the leaders and Residence secundaire),  altogether has been a reflection on the systems of production, human relationships and the fragility of the capitalist system.

“Moments de Solitude”. SpaceJunk Bayonne, France

Posted by | Uncategorized | No Comments

SPACEJUNK | BAYONNE
Du 5 février au 4 avril 2015
Vernissage le 05/02 à 18h30 35, rue Ste Catherine 64100 Bayonne – France

 

To begin 2015, the Brussels based artist Isaac Cordal takes possession the Spacejunk network with legions of tiny, middle-aged men in suits who navigate dreary, oppressive environments. Realized to be placed in the street, taking advantage of the existing architecture, Isaac lets us see a rough view of our society. Through ingenious installations, it points out the imperfections of our consumerist routines, the intellectual enslavement of mass and highlights environmental issues.

A l’instar d’un dramaturge, l’artiste espagnol Isaac Cordal, illustre avec poésie les nouvelles formes d’aliénation de notre société contemporaine.

 

Pour débuter cette nouvelle année, c’est donc Isaac Cordal qui s’empare du réseau artistique Spacejunk en mettant en scène ses petits personnages de béton d’une quinzaine de centimètres. Réalisés pour être placés dans la rue et offerts à la vue de tous, l’artiste nous invite à porter un regard frontal sur notre société. Grâce à d’ingénieuses installations, il pointe du doigt les imperfections de notre société consumériste et l’asservissement intellectuel de masse et met en lumière les problématiques environnementales.

 

Depuis quelques années, les miniatures de béton sortent par centaines de son atelier situé à Bruxelles et envahissent l’espace urbain jusqu’aux galeries d’art. Les scènes qu’il compose dans ces lieux de monstration reflètent invariablement le quotidien d’hommes et de femmes figés dans leur routine. Les attitudes lasses et désabusées de ses statuettes évoquent sans fard le sentiment général d’un système à la dérive.

Cement Eclipses

di Simona Picchi e Andrea Gnesutta

Isaac Cordal è un artista spagnolo, per la precisione un urban artist; negli ultimi anni ha dedicato le sue energie al progetto Cement Eclipses, che prevede la realizzazione di installazioni miniaturizzate inserite nel contesto di grandi città. L’elemento unificante di queste installazioni è l’utilizzo di un personaggio (una piccola statuina di uomo sempre uguale) che viene ospitato in angoli nascosti della città: dentro un’aiuola, in fila davanti ad un buco nel muro, sotto dei sassi, mentre cammina su un cornicione.

Le opere  di Isaac sono un misto di gioco, ironia ma anche riflessione sull’umanità contemporanea.

O projeto “Cement Eclipses” do escultor galego Isaac Cordal consiste em pequenas figuras de cimento, que instala nas ruas de todo o mundo, considerando que o público não precisa de visitar um museu para ver a sua arte. O artista utiliza a escultura para a criticar com humor e ironia a sociedade e as desigualdades sociais. Isaac Cordal esteve no 180 Creative Camp Abrantes 2014, onde instalou várias esculturas pelas ruas da cidade. O seu percurso foi registado pelo Canal180 neste 180ID.

Casus Pacis
28 JUNE — 15 SEPTEMBER
St Petersburgh
Russia

 

resized_IMG_8477

Back in June I have been working in St. Petersburg for two weeks to participate in the exhibition Casus Pacis, a parallel event of Manifesta10.

I was working there with my palestinian friend Bilal, he helped me a lot and we had a great time there sharing with other artists and organizers. The exhibit was dedicated to a tragic anniversary, 100 years since the start of World War I, and to the revolution in Ukraine, inching towards a civil war. It is very sad to think that so long after the war drums still ringing in our ears. Nothing has changed. And in Ukraine, Syria, Gaza and many other places, war crimes are committed against civilians with impunity.

 

It was an emotional moment to see so many Russian and Ukrainian artists working together.

 

Thanks to all the people in the organization: Polina, Luba, Mikhail, Anna, Timur etc. Especially Bilal for his help and friendship.
