About the work

Drawings are actions. Lines are telling stories.

What are these lines doing? Where is the beginning of a line?

My drawings are closer to music then to narrative stories.

About the artist:

Born 1956 Baden, Silvia Baechli lives and works in Basel. Graduated from Schule für Gestaltung Basel and Ecole superieur d'art visuel, Geneva (1980).

For Baechli drawing is experimenting, groping one's way and playing. In the best case you discover something that is a better fit and is more surprising than what you had expected.

Selected exhibitions include Interstices, LaBF15, Lyon (2021); Silvia Bächli, Karsten Födinger – Guest series, Nicolas Krupp, Basel (2020); Resonating Spaces, Fondation Beyeler, Riehen/Basel, (2019); Shift, Kunsthalle Karlsruhe (2019); Arts lointains si proche dans le regard de Silvia Bächli, Musée Barbier-Müller, Geneva (2018); Basel Short Stories, Kunstmuseum Basel (2018); Situer la difference, Silvia Bächli and Eric Hattan, CCS Paris (2017); weiter.wird – les abords, Frac Franche-Comté, Besancon (2015); Brombeeren, Staatliche Graphische Sammlung Pinakothek der Moderne, München (2014); What About Sunday – with Eric Hattan, MK Gallery, Milton Keynes, (2013); 53rd Biennale di Venezia, Swiss Pavilion, (2009); Nuit et jour, Centre Pompidou, Paris (2007).

Auction close and bidder extension

The auction closes at 9pm, Mon 5th July. However, if a bid is placed in the last two minutes, the auction end time will extend on that lot for an additional two minutes, or until all bidding has ceased. This is called Popcorn Bidding or Bidder Extension and gives all bidders an equal chance of winning.

Bid Increments

£50 increments for bids of £300 – £1,000

£100 increments for bids of £1,000 – £2,000

£250 increments for bids of £2,000 – £5,000

£500 increments for bids of £5,000 plus

Maximum bids

You are more likely to be the winning bidder if at the outset you place a maximum bid i.e. the maximum amount you are willing to pay for the work. Your maximum bid is not visible to other bidders. If another bidder exceeds your maximum bid you will receive an automatic notification. If you have placed a maximum bid the auction site will automatically place bids on your behalf, but only as much is necessary to make sure that you remain the highest bidder, until it reaches your maximum bid. These automatic bids are placed in increments, as shown above.
