Untitled by Mircea Cantor (*1977, Romania) shows a cross made from a cowpat and dried flowers on the wall of a house in Romania, an ancient custom for protection against evil and disease. Cantor is interested in everyday objects, which he documents in passing, in order to preserve their transient beauty.
