5 cuts

Stephanie Oursler


Stephanie Oursler self-published 5 cuts in 1975 in a small number of copies, on the occasion of an exhibition of the same name that took place in Rome, Bari, Milan and Como. She combines still images of unidentified silent films with autobiographical texts, and thus creates an open narrative of her life, which is both an intimate recollection and a literary construction. A poetic depth unfolds in Oursler’s language that, in connection with sometimes concrete, sometimes surrealist and enigmatic images, addresses the essence of memory.
