Small interventions in big cities…








Vigo, Spain

Isaac Cordal is a Spanish artist whose ongoing series entitled ‘Cement Eclipses’ began in art school in 2002. Cordal makes the tiny sculptures in his apartment/home studio. He has placed them in major cities all around Europe including: London, Amsterdam, Barcelona, Milan, Berlin and Brussels… “Small interventions in big cities.”

“Our gaze is so strongly focused on beautiful, large things, whereas the city also contains zones that have the potential to be beautiful, or that were really beautiful in the past, which we overlook. I find it really interesting to go looking for those very places and via small-scale interventions to develop a different way of looking at our behaviour as a social mass.”
