Parasol unit presents the first major survey exhibition of works by Swiss artist Heidi Bucher (1926–1993) to be shown in the United Kingdom.

Renowned for her latex casts of room interiors, objects, clothing and the human body, which Bucher herself referred to as Häutungen (skinnings), her work process has often been thought of as a break from her past, whilst at the same time preserving haunting manifestations of it. To make her skinnings, Bucher first covered a surface with gauze before applying successive layers of liquid latex to it. The peeling-off process was usually a dramatic and performance-like stage of the work which was very important to Bucher. It required extreme technical, physical and mental rigour and conviction, and could only be done once Bucher deemed the latex to be sufficiently dry.
