Heidi Bucher (1926–1993) made a name for herself in the late 1970s with her tulle and latex casts of parts of houses (room, door, window, radiator, etc.) that had some connection with one stage or another of her life. She saw rooms as skins, something she could take an impression of. Her works question the relationship between the body and architecture while emphasizing our memory of place. A native of Zurich, Bucher also lived for a time in California. She was largely forgotten, however, after her death until being rediscovered thanks to a show at the Migros Museum in 2004. Her work can be likened to that of such major artists as Gordon Matta-Clark, Edward Kienholz and Rachel Whiteread. CCS is pleased to present the first monographic show in France devoted to Bucher and her work.
