Opening Wednesday, February 19th at the Swiss Institute, New York is a solo exhibition by Swiss artist Heidi Bucher (1926-1993). The exhibition presents a unique selection of Bucher’s most significant works, along with screenings of audiovisual documentation and never before seen archival materials. Born in Winterthur, Bucher moved to California in the 1960s. In the United States, she befriended Ed Kienholz and collaborated with her husband, Carl Bucher, on “Bodyshells”, a series of wearable sculptures exhibited at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art in 1972. Continuing her exploration of the relationship between clothing and architecture, she returned to Switzerland in the mid-1970s and began her most iconic body of work, latex casts of objects and architectural elements.
Opening: Wednesday, February 19, 2014.
Heidi Bucher will be on view through May 11, 2014.
