"Corrections 2" - art by the scalpel
by Diana Popova

The two videotapes are following in close-up the circumcision of the artist. It all starts with the preparation: the introduction of the local anesthetic; the disinfection of the whole area; the positioning of the sterile cloth with a square opening through which the organ for the upcoming procedure is taken out; the clipping and stretching of the skin that has to be removed. What follows is the real thing: deft cuts with the scalpel and recurring swab ups of the springing blood. After the removal of the useless parts there comes the sewing back of the rest of it with unbelievably fascinating for me surgical knots. At the end the organ is bandaged and that puts the end to both the operation and the artwork.
