About Mircea Cantor

In 2015 'Deeparture' a video work by Romanian artist Mircea Cantor get the attention of the international art community. A wolf and a deer were featured in white cube gallery space, spending time there in some unbelievable peaceful and suspicious intention. In 2011 the artist received the prestigious Marcel Duchamp Prize. In his often minimalist, conceptually brilliant works, he combines formal elegance and nonchalance with a narrative and philosophical existential dimension.
