Isaac Cordal recently spent couple of days in the coastal town of Rijeka in Croatia. Invited to participate in the Spajalica public art project organized by the local museum of modern art, Spanish artist spent his time there installing his miniature sculptures around the center.

Continuing his ongoing series “Cement Eclipses” Cordal placed around 25 permanent figurines around the city center. Placed behind the lamps, on street facades, balancing on the cables and luring from pipes, these little men are symbolizing the dark side of the modern society. Wearing business suits, carrying briefcases, gazing into distance or starring into their phones, they make passer byers happy with their small insignificance appearance. Along with these permanent works, the artist used the opportunity to work around Rijeka’s rich industrial heritage, to create some temporary installations that might be used in his future shows or projects. Finally, he created 2 new mesh wire sculptures continuing the concept he introduced back in 2011, which will be permanently installed in Rijeka at later date.

About Sasha Bogojev

Growing up skateboarding I always enjoyed board graphics, Toy Machine adds and art section in Thrasher magazine. Around that time I started flirting with graffiti which eventually lead to appreciating street and urban art. Few years later I ended up with an Internet based job. Too much online time on my hands resulted in getting involved in art related forums, and finally writing for various art websites.
