Who is Isaac Cordal?

Isaac Cordal is a sculpture artist from Galicia who creates miniatures sculpted from concrete. His little people are always thoughtfully placed in the streets. They can be found in many unusual and unlikely places such as in gutters, on top of buildings and on top of bus shelters.
Cordal manages to capture a lot of emotions through his miniatures.

“Men and women are suspended and isolated in a motion or pose that can take on multiple meanings. The sympathetic figures are easy to relate to and to laugh with. They present fragments in which the nature, still present, maintains encouraging symptoms of survival. The precariousness of these anonymous statuettes, at the height of the sole of the passers, represents the nomadic remainders of an imperfect construction of our society. These small sculptures contemplate the demolition and reconstruction of everything around us. They catch the attention of the absurdity of our existence.”

Bunker

Os Gemeos posted a photo of their latest project “O bunker” on their Facebook page. It is their first ever permanent installation built for Museu Casa do Pontal in Rio de Janeiro. It depicts one of their signature yellow characters hiding in a bunker. The idea behind this project was to show the importance of preserving the tradition and the folk culture of Brazil. Bunker itself represents safety as well as fragility of what’s inside.

“It’s unfortunate to see such a scene, the Casa do Pontal Museum all flooded!! The largest and most important museum of folk art in the country has become part of the towns patrimony, with a collection of 8500 pieces in danger. The museum is located one meter below the newly constructed Media Village for the 2016 Olympic Games and after Saturday’s storm the rainwater flooded the museum. This already predicted catastrophe points to a total disregard by the government. How long will our culture, history, nature and society be mistreated?”

Who Is Invader ?

Invader is the pseudonym of a well-known French urban artist, he took his name from the 1978 arcade game called Space Invaders. Invader’s work is modelled on the crude pixellation of 8-bit video games, his characters are created from square ceramic tiles. If you have seen the amazing street art documentary Exit Through The Gift Shop by Banksy, you have seen Invader during his work.

What is the Space Invaders project about?

“It is first of all about liberating Art from its usual alienators that museums or institutions can be. But it is also about freeing the Space Invaders from their video games TV screens and to bring them in our physical world. Everything started the day I decided to give a material appearance to pixelization through ceramic tiles. I first wanted to create a series of “canvases” but I soon realised that tiles were the perfect material to display these pieces directly on the walls. I then had the idea of deploying my creatures on the walls of Paris and soon after in cities around the globe. Each of these unique pieces become the fragment of a monumental installation.”
