“Lots of people find them very sad and negative, but I think there is also a lot of humor to them.”
Cordal makes his cement figures in his studio before relocating them to the streets. “Sometimes I put sculptures in my backpack and then, walking in the streets, I find situations that work well and that I had not imagined before,” he says.
The artist likes the readymade backdrops for his sculptures that cities provide. “The street is great: you can just use the space that is there. I find it more difficult to create the setting myself in a gallery. In the city everything is there at hand: puddles, holes in the roadway, etc.”
