Isaac Cordal in Zagreb and Vienna With His Little Men

The impersonal isolation of living inside a human hive, the unraveling of a threadbare social safety net, the militarization of the natural world, the impact of industrial activity on our environmental, and the brutal punches of a bankrupt monetary system set free.  How can Isaac Cordal address such weighty matters with such miniature sculptures?  Also, does he sleep?

As has been true for decades, certain Street Artists use their work to directly or indirectly speak to the ills of society. Part of his studio work and his street practice, to varying degrees Cordal is determined to visually illustrate the impact of our external world engineering on the internal world of the individual through installations and staged scenes. What makes them particularly effective is placement; his involvement of his figures in pre-existing venues. He uses puddles of water, litter, municipal protuberances and holes in bricked buildings as pre-designed sets for his figures to interact with. Normally overlooked on your daily travels, their scale is suddenly altered by their relation to the sculptures.

Just back from trips to Zagreb, Croatia and Vienna, Austria, the artist shares these exclusive images with BSA readers of some of his latest works.

These September works in in Vienna were part of the BLK River Festival and the ones in Zagreb were for /// MUU /// Muzej ulične umjetnosti.

“The first project in Zagreb was an intervention in a wall of bricks. I called it: Susjedi (it means neighbors in Croatian),” says Cordal.

The second project in Zagreb was this cloud with raining men. This work is called Haarp´s Effects and speaks about climate weapons. More info: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/High_Frequency_Active_Auroral_Research_Program

Inoperable Gallery Presents: ROA “Decomposition” (Vienna, Austria)

ROA
brooklyn-street-art-roa-inoperable-gallery-vienna

August 26th, as of 19h

The Viennese Art Gallery INOPERAbLE presents works of one of the most highly regarded artists of the street art movement, ROA.

INOPERAbLE gallery will show the latest work of the Belgian artist, including installations, paintings on found objects, and original drawings. ROA will also present his limited edition hand bound book “ROA: An Introduction To Animal Representation” (Mammal Press). A limited number of copies of the books, which include his first ever print, will be available at the opening.

ROAs work indoor is just as fascinating and innovative as those created outdoors in urban and suburban areas. The artists original works have solidified him as an undisputed key figure in the Urban Art movement. Recently a work of ROA was scheduled to be removed by the Hackney city council, however an overwhelming reaction from the local citizens helped save the work. Similarly numerous works by Banksy were “rescued”, again marking ROAs signifigance in the contemporary art scene. Animals are the central theme in ROAs artistic universe. His monumental rabbits, birds, rats or fish, usually in black and white, can be found in cities like New York, London, Paris, Berlin or Mexico. Hefocuses on the fauna of the region, merging them naturally and seamlessly into the environment. Often the decompossing creatures reflect the artists critical view of society around the walls where he works. The bold and large scale murals of ROA confrontハ viewers and provide a break in their hectic everday lifestyle, if only just for a moment.

Over the last half decade, ROAs work has been exhibited internationally in solo and group exhibitions. Most notably ROAs work was shown in the internationally acclaimed exhibition “Art in the Streets” at the Museum of Contemporary Art (Los Angeles) alongside Banksy, Swoon, Barry McGee, Space Invader, Basquiat, JR, Os Gemeos and many more. ROA spends much of his time traveling the world, visiting cities and villages of all sizes. This summer he was invited to Gambia along with a handful of active Street Artists to paint murals in small villages, which are usually ignored by tourists. The project was meant to encourage “whites” to stop in these towns to admire the works and support the local businesses, rather than just throw candy out of the window to the children.

ROA will spend the month of August in Vienna as Artist in Resident at Museums Quartier. With the help of the MQ and INOPERAbLE, ROA will spend much of his time creating awe inspiring works around the city. Keep your eyes open for new works as he hits up the capital of Austria, and prepares for his solo exhibition at INOPERAbLE.

Street Layers from Paris, Berlin and Vienna

From the Editor:

In the past I breezed by destroyed posters and flyers that amass on construction worksites and abandoned buildings with little thought. Thanks to the work of photographer Vinny Cornelli I have learned to see them entirely differently – like Earth Science, like strata; a layer of text or design or photography with internally consistent characteristics that distinguishes it from contiguous layers. The destruction and consequent revealing of shapes, color, and texture create haphazard new compositions. Sometimes it doesn’t work, but hell yeah, some times it does, and Vinny is always on the lookout.

From photographer Vincent Cornelli:

After my recent trip photographing street art in Hamburg, it brought me back to some of the photos I took last  summer in Paris, Berlin and Vienna.  I thought it would make the perfect follow-up piece for my bi-weekly posts for BrooklynStreetArt.com.  I think I would rather let the pictures speak for themselves.  Hope you enjoy them.
