Mircea Cantor

The radical economy of means used in the protoform work of Romanian artist Mircea Cantor (b. 1977, Oradea, Romania) contrasts with the visual saturation of our over-mediatised environment. Although it evokes social, political and economic realities, the work of Mircea Cantor is wary of expressing clear-cut opinions. The intention is more to “talk about poetics through politics”.
