Isaac Cordal’s miniature world
- Caroline Kurze
Probably most of you are meanwhile familiar with Isaac Cordal’s miniature works that inspired many others to follow. We first introduced him in 2011 and thought it was time to re-visit his side and provide you with a little update of his latest works.
With the simple act of miniaturization and thoughtful placement, Isaac Cordal magically expands the imagination of pedestrians finding his sculptures on the street. The art work intends to catch the attention on our devalued relation with the nature through a critical look to the collateral effects of our evolution.
Isaac Cordal is sympathetic toward his little people and you can empathize with their situations, their leisure time, their waiting for buses and even their more tragic moments such as accidental death, suicide or family funerals.
The sculptures can be found in gutters, on top of buildings, on top of bus shelters; in many unusual and unlikely places in Barcelona, Nantes, Brussels, Berlin, London and many more, so keep your eyes open, you might just spot one.
