La société?! – group show at Atelier des bains, Geneva. Switzerland

Posted by | Uncategorized | No Comments

La société?! (society ?!) is an exhibition, which brings three artists from three different countries together. The exhibition title shows his meaning once the viewer will enter the gallery; it is a vibrant and sometimes hidden critic on our modern day society. In order to make this critic even stronger the show brings together three different mediums, painting, photography and sculpture.

Slinkachu‘s photography seems harmless and very pleasing to the eye at first it is only when we analyse the subjects that the viewer starts realizing that there might be something else hidden in these photos.


Isaac Cordal‘s miniature sculptures are more direct in bringing the message to the spectator, however the viewer has to come a lot closer to the work in order the appreciate the details of the work and some hidden symbols.

Pixel Pancho‘s in contrast shows us an alternative world, a perfect harmony, family portraits or perfectly normal aspects of life, however the twist is that his world is only represented by robots. Are robots better humans? Can they help for a better world? What is the difference between a humanoid and a mechanical robot?

“The Object and The Image (This is Not a Chair Either)”. Miami, Usa

Posted by | Uncategorized | No Comments

Aluna Art Foundation will participate in the inauguration of Concrete Space, an alternative art project that will open its doors to the public next Saturday, March 18th, with the exhibition “The Object and The Image (This is Not a Chair Either)”.

Curated by Aluna Curatorial Collective (Adriana Herrera and Willy Castellanos), the exhibition will feature invited artist Chema Madoz, and will recover historic works by Hexágono: Equipo de Creación Colectiva(Havana, 1982-1985), integrated by Consuelo Castañeda, Humberto Castro, Sebastián Elizondo, Abigail García, María Elena Morera and Tonel.

The exhibition will give place to a prompt dialog between local artists from different nationalities, and will feature works from (in alphabetical order): Francis Acea (Cuba/USA), Mauricio Alejo (Mexico), Néstor Arenas (Cuba/USA), Susana Blasco (Spain), Karim Borjas (Venezuela/France), Álvaro José Brunet (Cuba), Isaac Cordal (Spain), Marina Font (Argentina/USA), Xavier G-Solís (Spain), Juan Sí González (Cuba/USA), Jesús Hdez-Güero (Cuba), Ronald Morán (Salvador), Martha María Pérez Bravo (Cuba/Mexico), Cecilia Paredes (Peru/USA), Rainy Silvestre (Cuba/USA) and Viviana Zargón (Argentina).

The Object and the Image (This Is Not a Chair Either), brings back the quest of a group of artists to exploit this subject. They work from different visions and approaches in the creation of a hybrid and highly polemic object – an alter object -, whose values move around the intersection of the constructive practices of installation, sculpture, and the documentation of an authorial experience, and whose final product is a photograph in itself.

In this sense, the exhibition also exposes the artifact –the source of the exhibited photographs – uniting under one roof two instances traditionally separated in exhibition spaces: the image and its referent. This suitable coincidence will not only allow us a glimpse into the implicit mechanisms of image production, but will also propose to the spectator a journey through that zone that is neither the object nor its image: Rather, it is the mental process that transformed each artifact (in Latin “that which is made with art”) into a mine field that questions the stable condition of the “order of things,” and the concept of reality.

ISAAC CORDAL. “GIZA KOMEDIA”.

Isaac Cordal entitles his new exhibition “Giza Komedia” (Basque for “The human comedy”) and it is a continuation of his wider project Cement Eclipses.

Cement Eclipses is an ongoing series of interventions left to their fate in the public space. This project combines sculpture and photography: sculpture is the starting point to create urban installations, and photography is the final or documentation process. The pieces are small (approximately 15-20 cm / 6-8 inches tall), and usually made of painted concrete.

Cement Eclipses is a critical definition of our behavior as a social mass. The art work intends to catch the attention on our devalued relation with the nature through a critical look to the collateral effects of our evolution. With the master touch of a stage director, the figures are placed in locations that quickly open doors to other worlds. The scenes zoom in the routine tasks of the contemporary human being.

Men and women are suspended and isolated in a motion or pose that can take on multiple meanings. The sympathetic figures are easy to relate to and to laugh with. 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.

Isaac Cordal is sympathetic toward his little people and you can empathize with their situations, their leisure time, their waiting for buses and even their most tragic moments such as accidental death, suicide or family funerals. The sculptures can be found in gutters, on top of buildings, on top of bus shelters; in many unusual and unlikely places.

Cement Eclipses is an ongoing nomadic project that started in year 2006. So far, as a part of this project there have been public space interventions in Berlin, London, Bogotá, Brussels, Zagreb, Vienna, Milan, New York, Amsterdam, Nantes, San José, and Hanoi, among other cities.

“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.

Untitled-1
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.
