In 2007, the Spanish building industry used 54.2 million tones of cement. This factoid did not escape the thoughtful attentions of one interesting Galician digital nomad, namely Isaac Cordal.
As a response to our ongoing conflict with the natural environment, Cordal saw this frenzied ‘cementisation’ of the world around him and reacted controversially.
Cordal has created a tiny community of cement sculptures hidden and isolated around the city. His sculptures are individualistic, using the grey functionality of cement to question the lack of colour and vibrancy in so much of our lives through his tiny figures.
The exhibition runs until May 12th at RAS Gallery in Barcelona.
