CEMENT ECLIPSES @ CHIAPAS MEXICO

Artist Isaac Cordal (tumblr / facebook) - “With the simple act of miniaturization and thoughtful placement, Isaac Cordal magically expands the imagination of pedestrians finding his sculptures on the street. Cement Eclipses is a critical definition of our behavior as a social mass. 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. With the master touch of a stage director, the figures are placed in locations that quickly open doors to other worlds. The scenes zoom in the routine tasks of the contemporary human being”.

 Figurative Sculptures by Jaume Plensa

“Many of my works reflect the dualism between body and soul, subjects which feature widely in my work.

For instance, within my light works is a somehow moving light.This could be the soul which we can never find within the body.”

In the darkest time of the year, the internationally acclaimed and awarded artist, who started his career in the 1980s, creates an exhibition in EMMA around the theme of light. The forty individual sculptures as a  part of installations created in 2004–2012 will fill most of the room for changing exhibition.
Shaped like human figures, torsos and heads will engage in discussions and dialogues in the spacious room opening up to the surrounding landscape. Plensa’s sculptures shape the immaterial. Through the human figure, the artist explores universal themes of life: love, despair, memory and language. In addition to light, other important elements in Plensa’s works are letters and words. He sees a letter as a cell, with its own “cellular memory”. He gets many of his influences from poetry (William Blake, Elias Canetti), music and various soundscapes.
Created in steel, synthetic resin, glass fibre, iron, bronze, alabaster, paper and light, the works offer a cross-section of Plensa’s career as sculptor. He has also created numerous works on paper as well as etchings. His other works include sets and costumes for opera and theatre productions.

Some old books have hidden messages on the edge of their pages.

This was done through a technique called “fore-edge painting,” which is an illustration that is hidden on the edge of the pages of the book. The technique allegedly dates back to the 1650s.

You always hurt the one you love
The one you shouldn’t hurt at all
You always take the sweetest rose
And crush it until the petals fall
