One of the most impressive projects he did with MOMA in 2008, ‘Deeparture’, shows a deer and a wolf kept in a white room. Mircea Cantor filmed the encounter in detail, exploring every move, every reaction and the interesting part is that two animals didn’t interact, both showing clearly distress.
‘Unpredictable future’ shows a steamy window where we see the trace of the writing of someone’s finger with the two words which they can mean anything and everything in these disturbed times. Or at anytime.
Another favourite is ‘Vertical attempt’, a video starring a little boy who cuts with a scissor the water running from a faucet. It is a 3 seconds video that goes on and on on a loop, which finishes briskly when the scissors cut.
However, another powerfull video in the exhibition, which you can see also from the first floor, is ‘Tracking Happiness’ where seven women dressed in white, sweeping away each other’s footsteps on the white, sandy floor. The rest, we’ll let you discover for yourself. The exhibition started almost a year ago and will be on display only until the 13th of April so, if you’re in Bucharest, make sure not to miss it.
