|Sachiko Abe, Cut papers, performance, 2002|
Sachiko, a performance artists started cutting paper when she was a mental hospital patient. It helped her to calm and deflected the need to cut herself. 'It takes 40 minutes to cut one whole paper,' she writes in her explanatory note. From small cuts in paper, over the duration of the exhibition, she constructs a strikingly beautiful, ephemeral cocoon around herself.
Talking paper here are two other artist/art collective dealing with this media.
