Snip Snip Snip Snip Snip Snip Snip Snip...........

A highlight of the UK Liverpool Biennial Art Fair is the A Foundation's Sachiko Abe. This Japanese artist obsessively and meticulously cuts A4 sheets of white paper into delicate paper 'strands'. The large "cone" you see in the picture below is hung from the ceiling and is 7 years worth of Sachiko's "Cut Papers" - she has been cutting for 9 years as a hobby but turned it into a profession.  She first arrived on the global art scene with an exhibition at New York's PS1 less than a decade ago and her work provokes strong reactions, perfect for Liverpool's "Touched" theme this year.

The fine texture of the paper makes it look like delicate angel hair strands.

the sound of Sachiko's scissors are electronically amplified throughout the nine hours she cuts sheets of A4 throughout the day .
