ISAAC CORDAL /// CEMENT ECLIPSES
"Strategically placed in London and other cities, Isaac Cordal's tiny figurines explore the nature of modern urban solitude.
(...) Since 2006, Isaac Cordal has been placing minuscule cement pieces on streets, sidewalks, walls and other corners of cities across Europe, exploring "the voluntary isolation of human beings" from nature. Cement Eclipses is a beautiful new 256-page anthology of images from the project, many never-before-seen, offering a thoughtful look at his tiny-big gifts to the public and inviting an exploration of their meaning in a sociocultural context.
"Cement eclipses is a research project of urban space that runs between the fields of sculpture and photography. The sculpture is used as a starting point and photography as a witness to the execution of installations for later viewing or exhibition." Isaac Cordal
Vulnerable and expressive, the vignettes in Cement Eclipses are as much a conversation about solitude as they are an invitation to examine our role as citizens and fellow human beings in a shared urban reality. "(Maria Popova for the Atlantic)
