''She has been sitting perched high up in the massive space of the Furnace every day of the Biennial (apart from Mondays when the A Foundation is closed) and she spends all her time cutting paper into very thin strips.
The tall cone of paper is the result of some seven years of paper cutting. The scissors are slightly amplified but the space is otherwise silent so people instinctively fall quiet and stand or sit and watch, think, contemplate. Many find it a spiritual or even religious experience.
When she is not cutting paper, Abe draws very intricate pieces with a black pen which you can see in the room below where she sits. There is also a ‘white room’ with space for just one person at a time, close the door and sit or even lie down and look at the long strands of paper hanging from the ceiling. Also don’t miss the 16mm film of Abe’s paper-cutting by Ben Rivers.''
