Silvia Bächli

Far apart – Close together

This comprehensive reader examines the work of Swiss graphic artist and illustrator Silvia Bächli through the different facets of her creative drawing work.

Everyday perceptions form the starting point of an artistic process, in the course of which Silvia Bächli appropriates objects in order to lend them an autonomous, graphic form. Since 1984 she has been adding her small-scale drawings to multi-part compositions or Ensembles on the wall.

Her large-scale table installations have been created, in which several sheets are presented like an archive, in flat display cases, and since 2001 she has been working on large-scale paper works with overlapping, slender lineaments. In recent years she has turned to photography as an important artistic medium.
