Heidi Bücher @ Parasol Unit

19 September 2018 - 9 December 2018

A major survey exhibition of works by Swiss artist Heidi Bucher(1926–1993), showing for the first time in a UK public institution 25 years after her death.  This exhibition brings together a significant body of her enigmatic latex works made during the last two decades of her artistic life and includes screenings of films that document her at work. The visceral qualities of Heidi Bucher’s intriguing works bear testimony to her deep sensitivity and suggest numerous associative meanings. Well known for her latex casts of room interiors, objects, clothing and the human body, which she herself referred to as Häutungen(skinnings), Bucher’s process invariably preserved a haunting imprint of an architectural surface or an object which was simultaneously both a physical encapsulation of and a liberation from the memories these things held for her.
