Louise Lawler's contribution to Swiss Re's collection is an image from the "Adjusted to Fit" series.

Resonating with the prominent presence of Sol Lewitt's work in Swiss Re's collection, the photograph depicts the installation of a Sol Lewitt wall drawing that will be adjusted to fit an expansive wall on the 43rd floor.

For this work, the artist took a photograph she made and torqued or stretched it to fit the location of its display.
