Isaac Cordal Solo Show til December 16th

Isaac has been extremely busy over the last year and traveled to many different international spots to leave his signature 'Cement Eclipse' pieces. We interviewed Isaac in an earlier issue of LSD Magazine and have to say the artist is a very likeable chap. He currently has a solo show happening in Brussels, Belgium which started on November 8th - December 16th

'There is no authority without Prestige even once it’s sunk. Ten years after The Prestige polluted more than 1000 beaches, Isaac Cordal (Spain,  1974) presents new works and a full look at his project, ‘Cement Eclipses: Small Interventions in the Big City.’

 In the front hall, Isaac has created a new work for the gallery that transforms the effect that austerity measures are having on families and  communities across the EU into a waking discussion. For each 1% rise in the unemployment rate, there is a 0.8% rise in suicides; homelessness   is rising quickly across the continent yet there are no published European statistics to date

 Cement Eclipses (2006 – to Present)    Cement Eclipses – Small Interventions in the Big City is an ongoing research project that deals with space, scale and social phenomena  through sculpture, photography and ephemeral installations. In addition to the cement sculptures, Isaac also employs other material like common  colanders and city lights. Cement refers to more than material, and had a role in the project’s original interest and aims. In 2007, 54.2 tons of  cement was purchased for use in Spain. Much of it went untouched as the real estate boom devastated the country’s seaboard, traveled inland  and contributed to the daily rise of unemployment and poverty wounding the nation. Eclipses, refers to nature, balance and the feeling of being  overwhelmed by scale or speculation. '
