Isaac Cordal is a Spanish artist who is working with miniature cement figures to comment on social, political and environmental issues. His series Follow the Leaders is a 2012-2013 work the opens a dialogue about capitalism and its side effects. As he explains on his website:

“After three months of work a new version of my installation Follow the leaders has been filed Place du Bouffay in Nantes, produced by Levoayageanantes. This time the result is a massive installation consists of 2000 pieces and several concrete buildings which represent a kind of city in ruins: a metaphor for the collapse of capitalism and the side effects of progress. The installation occupied 20 m x 18 m. At night it lights up like a sort of ghost town.

Follow the leaders is an installation in process whose sculptures number varies according to circumstances: the population could be from two thousand to five members and it can be presented both outside and inside.

Follow the leaders is a critical reflection on our inertia as a social mass. Representing a social stereotype associated with power compound businessmen who run the global social spectrum. I worked with a great team of people that have helped me to realize this project.”
