In Cutting, the artist cuts out text from a large sheet of paper, and then cuts the clothes and body hair of an immobile man. This is one of a series of works in which VALIE EXPORT explores the meaning of editing, using film editing or montage as a central metaphor.

Writes EXPORT, "Celluloid is not cut, but the materials that are cut are individually transformed and applied to other binding elements of the film which are also abstracted and transformed."

Cutting is the video documentation of a performance at Underground Explosion in Munich.
