    So, once you hide the columns the chart empties. You can though, access the values in the hidden columns using VBA. So, you can fill a chart via VBA with the hidden columns data.

    Put the hidden range data in an array, then use that to fill the chart.

    excel - Create Chart from Array data and not range - Stack Overflow

    edit: super simple of course
        Dim hiddenCol1 As Range
        Dim hiddenCol2 As Range
        Dim rangeChart As Chart
        Dim chartSeries As Series
        Dim chartValues() As Integer
        Dim chartXValues() As String
            
        Set hiddenCol1 = ActiveSheet.Range("B1:B5")
        Set hiddenCol2 = ActiveSheet.Range("C1:C5")
        
        Set rangeChart = ActiveSheet.ChartObjects("Chart 4").Chart
        Set chartSeries = rangeChart.SeriesCollection.NewSeries
        
        rangeChart.ChartType = xlLine
        ReDim chartValues(hiddenCol1.Count - 1)
        ReDim chartXValues(hiddenCol1.Count - 1)
        
        For rw = 2 To hiddenCol1.Count
            chartXValues(rw - 1) = hiddenCol1.Cells(rw, 1)
            chartValues(rw - 1) = hiddenCol2.Cells(rw, 1)
        Next rw
        
        chartSeries.Values = chartValues
        chartSeries.XValues = chartXValues

    Dim cht As Chart
    Set cht = ActiveChart
    
    
    'Ignore errors if no chart active
    On Error Resume Next
    
    
    'Toggle hidden data visibility
    cht.PlotVisibleOnly = Not cht.PlotVisibleOnly
