Mircea Cantor

Deeparture is an unnerving examination of conventional associations and psychological connotations. Cantor confines a wolf and a deer in a white-cube gallery space, in a deliberate manipulation of the natural terrain between this predator and prey. Set within this alien environment, Deeparture silently portrays an atmosphere of surveillance and potential danger in a captivating, disturbing and unexpected scenario that shifts between tension and ambivalence.
