Mircea Cantor is a Romanian artist whose work is attracting increasing international attention. He works in a wide variety of media including video and photography and constantly investigates the conventions of image and object making. He often prods us to remember that immigration, national identity and wealth are pressing issues worldwide and that the experiences of the individual differ enormously. Whilst Cantor’s visualising often combines layered meanings and questions, he uses multi-sensory techniques that amplify the emotional resonance of the work.
