Heidi Bucher
Artist

The Swiss Avantgarde artist Heidi Bucher (1926-1993, born Adelheid Hildegard Müller) distinguished herself particularly through her legendary “mouldings,” focussing and exploring the architectural space and the body through sculpture. It is a transformative and poetic work, that deals primarily with private spaces and belongings, architectural fragments from mostly the 19th century, feminism, domestication and the individual or collective experiences and memory.

Heidi Bucher’s artistic legacy, is concurrently a visionary and aesthetic testimonial, as well as a conceptional liberation from an old, patriarchal affected world.

Her work is included in numerous exclusive museums and private collections worldwide, including MoMA Museum of Modern Art, New York, Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, The Hammer Museum L.A., Centre Pompidou, Paris, The Israel Museum, Jerusalem, Kunstmuseum Lucerne, Kunstmuseum Winterthur, Migrosmuseum für Gegenwartskunst Zürich.
