Cement Eclipses by Isaac Cordal
Cement Eclipses is a series by French Artist, Isaac Cordal, who creates mini skull sculptures, similar to Roy’s People without the skulls, and leaves them on the streets after photographing them in situ. I find this discreet form of street art amazing where you are not shouting from your piece of work, wanting the world too see, but rather whispering from the rooftops and hoping someone will glance up at you just once and take notice.
This outtake is taken from David’s Sketchbook – “With the simple act of miniaturization and thoughtful placement, Isaac Cordal magically expands the imagination of pedestrians finding his sculptures on the street. 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”.
