    par VernissageTV

    456 vues | Mircea Cantor: Tracking Happiness at Kunsthaus Zürich is Switzerland’s first solo show of works of Romanian artist Mircea Cantor. The centerpiece of the exhibition is a film created especially for the exhibition, “Tracking Happiness”. The video features a group of women clad in white sashaying in various formations barefoot across fine white sand. Their traces are wiped away by their broom-wielding successors. In this film, Mircea Cantor examines the paradox of an age in which traces are perpetually left and deleted. The film soundtrack has been composed by Adrian Gagiu. Another film, created especially for the Kunsthaus is “Vertical Attempt”. The video lasts only one second, showing a boy trying to cut the water that is pouring out of the tap. Mircea Cantor: Tracking Happiness / Kunsthaus Zürich. Press preview and opening reception, August 27, 2009.
