MIRCEA
CANTOR

For the second year in a row, the well-known contemporary artists Mircea Cantor will join the ARTDOOR – Big Art Meets Nature exhibition as a special guest. For the past decade, his artworks have been featured in famous museums and galleries like The Museum of Modern Art from New York and Pompidou centers in Paris. In 2013 he had a personal exhibition in Romania – Q.E.D., at the Museum of Contemporary Art from Bucharest.

 

In 2017, ARTDOOR hosted Cantor’s art work “Give more sky to the flags”. The sculpture, representing two flags that meet, was exhibited for the first time in Romania, on the grounds of Teleki Estate in Gornesti, after it enchanted the public abroad. It was presented in Paris, at the Tuileries garden and Art Bassel Miami gallery. The sculpture is made out of rusty steel of high resistance (CorTen) and symbolizes the interaction between cultures. „Give more sky to the flags” is now on display at the Citadel of Tîrgu Mureș.

THE TELEKI ESTATE

Now

Nestled in the heart of Transylvania, Teleki Estate encompasses 16 acres of spectacular land, hosting the 18th century baroque castle and its lush English park with old trees, serene meadows and a charming little pond, all peacefully guarded by river Mureș.

A part of history

The domain has been with the Teleki family since the 17th century, when Mihály Apafi, regent of Transylvania, donated Gernyeszeg and other villages to count Mihály Teleki. But it wasMihály’s nephew, László Teleki who started the construction of nowadays castle in 1772, on the grounds of the old castle. The building was designed by architect Andreas Mayerhoffer of Salzburg in a baroque style. Its main features are the „U” form and the Great Hall in the middle.
Construction ended around 1796, during the time of László’s son, József Teleki. József also transformed the surrounding area into a lovely French garden.
