Isaac Cordal

Isaac Cordal (born in 1975) is a spanish artists who now lives and works in London. Isaac Cordal’s work is driven by the sculpture and installation. Cordal is a first and foremost a traditional sculptor who is modelling his primary figures in clay and then casts multiples in cement using silicone moulds. The multiples are then installed in their urban locations, and it’s this vernacular approach to his street level intervention that harmonises his work so well to it’s environment.

The New Slavery

The Spanish street artist was exposing his latest solo at the Temple of Gout in Nantes, France entitled The New Slavery. The show features a series of sculptures (what he refers to as Cement Eclipses), installed in the fantastic indoor setting, as well as a display of photography and videos related to his outdoor interventions. Cordal’s work has always had heavy political undertones and the new pieces aren’t any different. He states:

The new slavery reflects on society related to a new type of slavery: a daily slavery. We are immerse in a new form of bondage, without chains, but that keeps us perpetually completely tied to the perpetual work and payment of a debt, both private as to the state.
