The latest series of drawings from noted Swiss artist Silvia Bächli (born 1956) are shown alongside her small sculptures in Shift. The exhibition and catalog—which also features a wall installation developed in collaboration with Swiss conceptual artist Eric Hattan—addresses how two-dimensional works affect perception of three-dimensional space.

This comprehensive reader examines the career of Swiss illustrator Silvia Bächli (born 1956), who translates objects into a loose, abstract graphic form. Far Apart Close Together looks at her room-filling table installations, multi-part drawing ensembles hung on walls, large-scale paper pieces and recent photographic work.

Silvia Bächli's lineup of large-scale drawings is the most comprehensive to date from the important Swiss artist. Marked by Bächli's characteristic purity of form and drawn by hand, the lines, in grids or other manifestations, appear simple in their uniformity but differ from one another by the imperfections of human replication in their thickness, intensity and color value. All of the drawings possess a clearly readable and individual biography, one of spare essence. In an age of visual overload, Bächli's meditative visions provoke contemplation rather than wanton stimulation.
