Spanish-born, Brussels-based artist Isaac Cordal worked on a project called ‘Cement Bleak’, a street art intervention he first initiated a few years past in London. The urban public art installation employs the illumination from street lamps casting shadows upon manipulated metal cooking strainers, propped up by the handle of the piece. Three small faces have been modeled on metal sifters and as the light passes through the netted cookware piece, the end point of this luminosity a three-dimensional seeming face on the sidewalk.
The piece began as a test implementation of what the artist hopes will be a larger shadow projection project using the resource of city lighting in darkened streets.
