Paper Cutouts as a Stand-alone Art Medium

In ‘Final Cut’, seventeen international artists show works in the medium of silhouette or paper cut, a traditional folk art form that took root as an autonomous medium of artistic expression back in the classic modernist period, and which to this day retains its fascination. Contemporary exploration of this medium is surprisingly eclectic and idiosyncratic. Extensive wall installations and voluminous objects are therefore to be found in this book alongside delicate paper works. Format has long since ceased to be an issue, and makes every artistic position conceptually unique by comparison.
