With Heidi Bucher (* 1926 Winterthur, † 1993 Brunnen, Switzerland), Haus der Kunst presents an important and widely overlooked artist of the international neo-avant-gardes, whose latex works explore the constraints and liberation processes of human forms of existence. With her performative work, she directs attention to the body in space, in which experiences, relationships, and emotions are inscribed. The retrospective presents all the artist’s central groups of works to the public for the first time, from their beginnings to the experimental period in Los Angeles, the principal work with the architectural skinnings to the late work created on Lanzarote. From Bucher's initial fascination with the interplay between art and fashion, genderless body sculptures began to emerge in California in the early 1970s. The wearable and danceable "Bodyshells" celebrate the artist’s conception of sculpture between performance and object, fusing sculpture, architecture, design, and dance. The works will be reconstructed and reactivated for a symposium in the context of this exhibition.
