Mircea Cantor (a Romanian artist living in Paris, France and Cluj-Napoca, Romania) employs in his works video, animation, sculpture, drawing, painting and installation. His works elicit the ambiguities of everyday life in this postmodern era of cultural overlap with the disintegration of cultural boundaries (wiki)

His works have been presented at Hirshhorn Museum in Washington, Philadelphia Museum of Art, Minneapolis Walker Art Center, Centre Pompidou, GAMEC (Galleria di Arte Moderna e Contemporanea, Bergamo), Museo Tamayo Arte Contemporaneo, Mexico, etc.

Mr. Cantor was awarded with the Prix Ricard in 2004, and in 2011 he won the Best Dance Short Film at Tiburon International Film Festival. This year he is a nominee for the Prix Marcel Duchamp.
