“Follow the Leader” (2010): Perched on window sills or reaching through metal grates, the tiny cement figures of Brussels-based sculptor and street artist Isaac Cordal inhabit grimy urban spaces. Cordal’s critique of modern industrialization and subsequent alienation from nature is both understated and humorous. Here, defeated corporate drones file into a puddle as though committing suicide, although in other sculptures these suits float on oily puddles in miniature life preservers – a pointed jab at the twisted ideology behind big-business and their artful dodging of accountability.
